US Suffers 362 All-Time Record Temperature Highs, No Lows

 
The United States suffered through what is probably its warmest calendar year on record, but the really fascinating story of the year’s weather has been pulled out by Wunderground historian Christopher Burton, who analyzed data from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center and found that 2012 saw 362 all-time record temperature highs.

And no lows.

US Sees 362 All Time Record High

The chart above looks at a variety of statistics, all pulled from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center database of sites that measured daily and/or monthly record high and low temperatures. That’s a total of 5,500 sites.

The first two columns show daily record highs and lows — not all-time records broken.

This was one hell of a year. More Than 15,000 Warm Temperature Records Broken in Warm March. NOAA was predicting 2012 would be the hottest year on record back in June, and then again in September. While back in April, Death Valley saw the country’s hottest April temperature rocket to 113°F.
