September, 1953 – An Incredibly Hot Month

Most of the US rarely gets up to 100 degrees any more – particularly in September.  But during September, 1953 a huge swath of the eastern and midwest US was over 100 degrees.  The animation below compares September 1953 with NOAA’s completely fraudulent “hottest year ever”


Here is a newsreel from September, 1953

    Approximately 92% (or 99%) of USHCN surface temperature data consists of estimated values

    An analysis of the U.S. Historical Climatological Network (USHCN) shows that only about 8%-1% (depending on the stage of processing) of the data survives in the climate record as unaltered/estimated data.

    I was a third grader that fall, and I remember how damn hot it was just west of Milwaukee.

    September 1953 certainly started out hot. The first week broke many records. The rest of the month was not unusual.
