Even according to those data-fudging folks at NOAA, in a report released Monday, the Lower 48 just suffered its coldest month of February since the late 1980s (since the inception of the modern global warming scare).
Temperatures in the contiguous U.S. ran some 3.2 degrees F colder than the 20th century Feb average, said NOAA. Last month was also the 19th-coldest February among the 127 years of record books.

The month saw severe Arctic air ride anomalously-far south on the back of a weak and wavy “meridional” jet stream flow.
Six states (Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma) had one of their 10 coldest Februarys ever recorded, according to NOAA data.
Texas and Illinois each had their 11th coldest.
More than 5 million Texans lost power last month, and many more went without water for extended periods: “This,” said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, “is the winter version of Hurricane Harvey.”
