Might super typhoon in Pacific have any effect if it moves north east?
Posted by JERRY KOCHANIUK at 4:26PM CST 12/04/14
Forecasts for the Philippines super typhoon "Ruby" (Hagupit) have its track running almost straight west across the Philippines into the South China Sea by Sunday Dec 7. It looks like a very low probability that this storm's track will make a dramatic swing to the northeast.

Its funny you didn't mention much about the United States in your report. I'm sure at least in Iowa we had one of the coolest summers on record. Are you sure the NOAA incorporated some of the below normal temps in the Midwest in this report?????
Posted by DUSTIN RICKERTSEN at 10:55PM CST 11/23/14
It has been a warm November in North Dakota! Or maybe not.
Posted by JONATHON EATON at 12:43AM CST 11/24/14
Its funny you didn't mention the fall elections, US voted that there is no global warming!!!!
Posted by Jay Mcginnis at 5:05AM CST 11/24/14
Don't know the world wide averages, however only 8 deg. F. here this morning. The ground has been frozen for a month already. We can usually accomplish some field work until Thanksgiving. According to the boob tube, it has been one of the coldest Novembers on record.

Dog dish froze again this morning, how can there be global warming when the only place in the world that matters is my postal zip code????
Posted by Jay Mcginnis at 7:34AM CST 11/25/14
Solar powered dog dish heater don't work at night Jay? Maybe you could get a grant to study why.
Posted by Bonnie Dukowitz at 5:57AM CST 11/26/14

Posted by Jay Mcginnis at 12:08PM CST 11/26/14
US info discussed in blog comment section Nov 12. But one highlight--US Oct temp was the 4th-warmest on record.
Posted by Bryce Anderson at 3:02PM CST 11/26/14
We've had month after month of 10 to 20 degree days of colder then normal with a few days of normal through in ,at the end of the month the NOAA says warmest month on record. Do we believe them or step outside ?
Posted by FRANK FULWIDER at 7:36AM CST 11/28/14
Yes, step out on the back porch and read the thermometer, open your refrigerator and see all the food,,,,,, hey guys its called "GLOBAL" climate change and "WORLD" hunger for a reason but to see this you first need to pull your heads out of the sand! We aren't in Kansas anymore!
Posted by Jay Mcginnis at 1:32PM CST 11/29/14
Jay,have you checked the price of corn,wheat ,beans?Globle record crop of grains. The sky's not falling yet. Where people are hungry its not only the climates fault. You have farming methods, gov. regulations,money and transportation problems

I will take the cold, if it helps the grain market warm up. I see the combines are rolling in the snow covered fields again.

What happened to global warming? Is it warm some where in the world? Cold wave similar to 1940 maybe 1800 something, climate hasn't changed much.
Posted by FRANK FULWIDER at 8:33AM CST 11/13/14
We'll of course have to wait for the entire month of November to be tabulated--however, NOAA's U.S. climate report for October shows that October was a warm month. The average temperature for the contiguous U.S. last month was 57.1 degrees Fahrenheit--three degrees F above the 20th century average. This made October 2014 the fourth-warmest October on record. The October precipitation total for the contiguous U.S. was 2.33 inches, or 0.17 inch above average, ranking near the middle of the 120-year period of record. The global State of the Climate report will be issued next week, on Thursday November 20. The full U.S. climate report for October is at this link: http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/
