While those are the record extremes, we tend to have a huge spread of average temps each year as well. (-15/90)is about the winter low (not including wind chill) and summer high each year. Last Friday, Aug. 6th, we had a high of 83, a low of 47, and a hail storm. Isn’t summer fun.
All the more reason to love Hawaii, the least amount of spread!
Texas getting -23F? I don’t think so, some of these are a little out of line. Some yes, but Texas and California, I’m not so sure about.
Yes, Texas has had weather that cold. Realize that Texas extends far to the north — Perryton in the Texas panhandle is closer (by air) to Bismarck, North Dakota than it is to Brownsville, Texas. Here’s an authoritative source on that cold spell.
i’m from europe and i totally don’t get your weird numbers… 😉
That’s OK, we think your are weird too. 🙂
YOU GOT BURNED LOL
Stay tuned … I am working on maps that will show the temperature ranges in Celsius degrees, for the US and for Europe.
OK, now available are maps in Celsius degrees for US states and for European countries.
BillH – But consider that Texas and California are both very long states (latitude wise) and theres a big difference between – oh say the weather in Houston vs. the weather in Dallas/Ft. Worth.
In South Florida the spread is much narrower than shown for the entire state. Summer highest isn’t ever more than about 97 (really), and winter lowest is about 30. So a 67 degree range is our reality.
I was living near Medicine Lake, Montana when that record tying -70 was recorded Dec-1983. A few days later, the thermometer went from -50 in morning to +50 early afternoon, 100 degree change in less than 12 hours.
The Cali temps look right to me, considering Mt. McKinley and Death Valley.
187F. Wow. Must cook a persons gizzards.
Psst, Richard, Mt.McKinley is in Alaska.
Nice catch. I meant Mt. Whitney…I was at Mt. McKinley back in May.
Woo hoo….Montana finally wins…
Texas temps look fine to me. I’m in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area and we’ve seen highs around 115 many times. Although winter temps don’t usually get below zero in my area, I can easily see -23 up in the “pan handle” region.
