The atmosphere is totally different now so the weather won't be the same.

Please don’t tell me you came in here trying to deny climate change right now 😂
I'm definitely not denying climate change but I'm also acknowledging cycles.. I saw a comment earlier where we could be 75 degrees for our average high temperature in January in 50 years.. that couldn't be farther from the truth.. all scientific research that I've seen says we will only be about 3 to 5 degrees warmer possibly at the most in 50 years.

Ooof . That’s enough to make Raleigh warmer than CAE and Wilmington warmer than savannah . 5 degrees . Idk I just don’t see us warming like that , this decade will prove it .

LOL I just love to joke about it and exaggerate in the whamby thread. I don’t for a moment believe our climate is going to be like Tampa’s in 50 years, haha.

I couldn't even remember where I saw that or who posted it. Lol. That's what I get for trying to work and read comments on this site at the same time.

I wish. It’s been a cool Spring for the panhandle. I had to wear pants last week walking the beach.

Ive been posting a lot about them the last couple of days! Peachtree looks identical to raleigh lol, though i think Raleighs hotter summers would give us the higher annual mean. As for KATL that UHI is immense! 54/36 in jan? Not even the coastal regions have diurnals that small! Charlotte now has july over 90 as well, Raleigh had july over 90 in the 81-10 norms, now its very close to 91. Post Augusta if you get the chance, the July avg there is terrifying, almost 95!

Here is the deal with the small variation in Atlanta temps, the elevation keeps the temps normal during the day, but the intense urban heat island keeps the lows up tremendously, especially being surrounded by a massive airport and massive interstates on each side. Peachtree airport is pretty accurate for our area.

Here is Augusta, just brutal.

Kind of funny considering how wet this winter was but precip wise the only 3 months that got drier at RDU were Jan,Feb , and March. Although I think Jan precip days using the .01 cm threshold went up, not sure about the other 2 months.

Jesus waycross is hot, only 5 months of the year have sub 80 degree highs! Compare that to raleigh where only 5 months have greater than 80 degree highs but only 5 have sub 70 degree highs!
