    Summer is technically still weeks away, but if spring is of any indication, it could be a hot one in Central Park.

    The National Weather Service announced Wednesday that this spring has been the warmest on record in the park, with an average temperature of 57.1 degrees for the months of March, April and May. That’s 4.7 degrees warmer than the historical average and 0.8 degrees warmer than the previous record, set in 1991. The coldest spring on record occurred in 1888, when temperatures averaged 44.7 degrees.

    And the rest of the city/county/state/country stayed the same?

    Talk about inconsequential data.

    I wonder how far into the article you read Chris old boy.

    ""The National Weather Service has been measuring the temperature in Central Park since 1869, and although a hot spring does not guarantee a hot summer, it sometimes can.

    “It could go either way,” said Matt Scalora, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service. “Right now it looks to be about average.”

    For the months of June, July and August, the organization says that there is a 34% chance that temperatures will be above average. Last summer the temperature was roughly 72 degrees, a bit colder than average — few New Yorkers hauled out their air conditioners till mid-July or even August 1. The warmest summer in the park occurred in 1966 and the average temperature was 77.3 degrees. The coldest was 1903, when summer temperatures hovered around 69.3 degrees.

    Since January 1920, the National Weather Service has measured the temperature of Central Park at Belvedere Castle on Transverse Road and West 79th Street. Before that, it was measured at the Arsenal Building on 64th Street and 5th Avenue.""


    And no wonder about the temperature, look where it is measured....at a large HOT building. Yep, no Urban Island Effect here at all...nope!

    Hmmmm.........

    May 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update: +0.53 deg. C. Roy Spencer, Ph. D.

    The global-average lower tropospheric temperature remains warm: +0.53 deg. C for May, 2010. The linear trend since 1979 is now +0.14 deg. C per decade.Tropics picked up a bit, but SSTs indicate El Nino has ended and we may be headed to La Nina. NOAA issued a La Nina Watch yesterday.

    In the race for the hottest calendar year, 1998 still leads with the daily average for 1 Jan to 31 May being +0.65 C in 1998 compared with +0.59 C for 2010. (Note that these are not considered significantly different.) As of 31 May 2010, there have been 151 days in the year. From our calibrated daily data, we find that 1998 was warmer than 2010 on 96 of them.
