    Sunday was the second consecutive day of record heat in Flagstaff for early June, with the mercury topping out at 90 degrees at Pulliam Airport.

    Larry Riggs of the National Weather Service in Bellemont said the old record of 87 was set back in 2002.

    Saturday also saw a record set for the date when the high reached 88 degrees.

    Here in Portland temperatures are 12* below normal.

    And I am getting very tired of it.

    It got up to 63* today. Usually it is in the 80s.

    Wow you gonna tell us the weather every day now?... I ask you what does daily local weather have to do with overall planetary climate??

    There is weather; what the temperature, humidity, barometric pressure is now and or locally..

    And then there is Climate; what the planetary, long term and global temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure is doing..

    I thought you were all bout the science man...

    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.

    Hmmm....... 2000 to 2009, warmest decade on record. 1990 to 1999, second warmest decade. 1980 to 1989, third warmest decade. 2010, starting this decade with a year that may well eclipse 1998 and 2005 for warmth. And the polar ice is headed for a new record, probably both in low volume and low coverage.

    31 years of weather, sounds kind of like climate, Suckeee..... old boy.

    According to whom? And using what methods? And even if it is correct (which it isn't) it is insignificant in terms of overall climate rate of change... ice ages take 100's of years to even get a start, and so would warming trends, you cannot arbitrarily say this is some thing out of the ordinary when you have no idea what the ordinary is..

    You are done tool..
