Thursday October 18th… Dear Diary. The main purpose of this ongoing post will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials)😊.
Revisiting The Extreme Temperature Index
About once a year I trot out this idea knowing that I have new followers who might A) be interested and B) have connections with those who might have the resources for research. Many might not know of my own inroads in association with climate science, which this old piece shows…not that I want to pat myself on the back, but continue developing the science in association with extreme temperature or record events for climate change science purposes. After all, record heat and even record cold due to the dipole pattern reemerging this week are one of the biggest problems with climate change, which I think can be measured and catalogued better.
So, without further ado, here is a repost of the article Category 6 Weather Underground article advertising the Extreme Temperature Index:

(As usual, this will be a fluid post in which more information gets added during the day as it crosses my radar, crediting all who have put it on-line. Items will be archived on this site for posterity.)
