Death Valley was cooler than Missoula, Montana on Sunday
The Washington Post

Death Valley, Calif., which is known for being the world’s hottest location, maxed out at a relatively chilly 89 degrees on Sunday. This temperature – nearly 30 degrees below average – was its coolest high temperature on record for the date by a whopping 15 degrees. The previous record of 104 was set in 1945.

This was only the eighth time that a high in the 80s has occurred in Death Valley in July or August, and there hasn’t been a high less than 90 since 1984. Weather records in Death Valley go back to 1911.

Locations that were hotter than Death Valley yesterday include Spokane Wash. (93), Missoula, Mont. (91), Casper, Wy. (92), and Boise, Idaho (99). The average June high in Death Valley is 110 degrees, July is 117 degrees, and August is 115. This makes Sunday’s high temperature a ridiculous 26 degrees below normal.

The relatively cool air resulted from extensive cloud cover that blocked out the usual blistering sunshine. These clouds were a product of the Southwest Monsoon which transported unusual amounts of moisture into Southern California, where record rainfall occurred in some areas complemented by floods/mudslides in the mountains.

L’an passé, quand on avait battu des records de chaleur dans la « Vallée de la mort », les médias étaient devenus frénétiques s’imaginant voir la preuve de la confirmation des prophéties sur le réchauffement climatique.

Cette année, on bat des records de froid, donc les médias sont introuvables… Voilà comment on construit un consensus…
