One Month Closer to a Record Year....(12-6-12)
Earlier this week we pointed out that through November Syracuse was still on track for the warmest year on record. The numbers are now in for the entire country and here is where 2012 stands compared to all the years back to 1895.
The National Climatic Data Center has run the numbers and they say the United States would have to be 1 degree below the coldest December already on the books (1983) for us to slip below the current warmest year, 1998. That means it would have to be a record-breaking cold December (by quite a bit, mind you) for the United States NOT to break the record for the warmest year on record.
