The coldest summer ever? You might be looking at it, weather folks say. Right now the so-called summer of ‘08 is on pace to produce the fewest days ever recorded in which the temperature in Anchorage managed to reach 65 degrees.
That unhappy record was set in 1970, when we only made it to the 65-degree mark, which many Alaskans consider a nice temperature, 16 days out of 365.This year, however — with the summer more than half over — there have been only seven 65-degree days so far. And that’s with just a month of potential “balmy” days remaining and the forecast looking gloomy.

it's been a cool summer here in my valley...I have yet to turn on my air conditioning this summer, and several mornings have been in the upper 40's, forcing me to wear a jacket on my way to the office.
And I guess this would be a good time to point out the July Update on Global Temperature that came out a couple of days ago (and duly shared via my Google Reader) that shows a continued cooling trend. While June was the 9th warmest June on record, it was part of a trend of ever cooler Junes after the peak in 1998. You won't hear the fear mongering Legacy Media report that fact.
I am also working on adding a Climate News section to West Carolina Report, and an RSS Feed to go with it.
