    I think not. Especially when they get caught publishing a lie like this.

    The problem is this is a lie. And a HUGE lie at that. You see the average July temperature for Las Vegas is 107 degrees, and for August it is 103 degrees.

    When they publish such outright drivel as this, they can't be trusted with anything.

    You're right, we should probably ignore the official weather organization in favor of some Vegas tourism website.

    Damn, Mr. Westwall, you are exceeding your normal stupidity. Says right there on your site those are highs and lows. July, high, 107, low, 77. So the average temperatures for any year for that month would be between those numbers.

    Now tell me, is it that you cannot read a simple single line of data, or are you purposely lying?

    Study: Climate Change Goosed Odds of Freakishly Hot February in US
    March 08, 2017 | WASHINGTON — A freakishly balmy February broke more than 11,700 local daily records for warmth in the United States, but it didn't quite beat 1954 for the warmest February on record, climate scientists said.

    Yep. And I got over 17 FEET of snow where I am. Waaaaaay, above normal. That's why they call it "weather".

    We heard more than enough local weather reports about a "freakishly warm February". Were they all lies?

    Which says what? What was the temperature? Was it above or below average? So, was the snow something that represented unusual cold, or a precipitation event? If it was a precipitation event, then it is representative of a warming climate that evaporates more water, and increases precipitation. So, was the average warmer or colder during these snows.

    Below average. And by quite a bit. Short term weather is not indicative of anything other than the weather. Remember the old adage, "climate is what you expect, weather is what you get:.
