    The heat spike will match temps we briefly saw in April, according to the National Weather Service. In fact, last month was the warmest April on record dating back to the 1800s, according to meteorologist Phil Bachmann.

    In nearby Canada, Montreal and Ottawa will suffer record heat, and temperatures across northern Ontario into northwestern Quebec could reach the 95-degree mark.

    NEW DELHI: This summer, it's India Blazing. The soaring mercury has also exacted a severe human toll. In Vidarbha, 32 people are reported to have died from heat. Three CRPF jawans died in Gwalior on Monday due to heatstroke during a training programme. The maximum temperature on the day was 46.7 degrees.

    Weather experts say several factors have gone into making this a summer of unprecedented heat. Globally, 2010 so far has been the hottest year on record. An Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology studied had shown that the year following an El Nino — which became active last year — is marked by particularly hot spring and summer in India. That's turning out to be the case, with both March and April being among the hottest on record. A severely hot May has only added to the trend.

    Monday's heat blast: Not just a record high, but a record-high low

    Last update: May 25, 2010 - 11:03 PM

    Not only was the high of 95 degrees in the Twin Cities a record-breaker, the low -- 72 in the early morning hours -- also broke a record.

    Previously, the highest low for May 24 had been 67, set in 2006, according to the National Weather Service.

    To put Monday's smothering heat in perspective: The morning low is 1 degree below the average high for the date.

    "The combined global land and ocean surface temperature for January–April period was the warmest January-April period on record. This value is 0.69°C (1.24°F) above the 20th century average.

    "Separately, the worldwide land surface temperature ranked as the third warmest on record, behind 2007 (warmest) and 2002 (second warmest), while the worldwide ocean surface temperature ranked as the second warmest January–April on record—behind 1998."

    Gawd... I knew as soon as the weather warmed up the moonbats would start up with the global warming bullshit.
    No matter that it has snowed more in south Texas in the last several years than in any time in all my 43 years of living here.

    Let the lunacy begin

    No lunacy except for you.

    There is a hole in the ozone bigger than Antarctica.

    There is a garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean twice the size of Texas.

    There is an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico larger than the state of Maryland.

    And the polar ice cap is melting....

    Only a lunatic would ignore what we are doing.

    bwah ha ha.....!

    Thats about right.

    All those are just talking points that have been disproved, and I am not going to bother digging up real facts b/c it is a waste of my time.

    Go ahead and keep listening to Uncle Al. All the while he's just getting richer and richer
    :rolleyes:

    If that is your idea of a response, it pegs the lame meter.
