December 2021 Round-Up/Palmy Places US

Recommended Posts

The western palm areas of the United States experienced a traditional December 2021 while the eastern palm areas of the United States experienced what can only be described as wildly warm. While I have not verified where this December 2021 lines up historically, I can only assume that it must be approaching 

Los Angeles, California Had a high maximum temperature of 69°F, a mean temperature of 55.2°F and a minimum temperature of 40°F. San Diego, California had a high maximum temperature of 70°F, a mean temperature of 55.81F and a minimum temperature of 39°F. Palm Springs, California had a maximum temperature of 89°F, a mean temperature of 58.51F and a minimum temperature of 37°F. The California desert area continues to be the closest to the magic number of 60°F median necessary for Cocos nucifera.

Similarly, Arizona has experienced what can be described as a traditional December 2021. Phoenix, Arizona had a maximum temperature of 84°F, a mean temperature of 58.59F and a minimum temperature of 40°F. Interestingly, a rather large Cocos nucifera was recently located and reported on the board in Phoenix. Yuma, Arizona had a maximum temperature of 85°F, a mean temperature of 58.85F and a minimum temperature of 41°F. Cocos nucifera cannot be far behind.

The Rio Grande Valley, which was unfortunately devastated by a 100 year freeze, experienced similar eastern United States warm temperatures. Brownsville, Texas had a maximum temperature of 88°F, a mean temperature of 71.72F and a low temperature of 47°F. It is obviously time to replant the tropicals, including but not limited to Cocos nucifera.

Florida’s temperatures state wide were freakishly warm if not hot. Orlando, Florida had a maximum temperature of 86°F, a median of 69.39 F and a minimum temperature of 49°F. Eric’s tropical’s will be expanding dramatically if this continues! Miami, Florida had a maximum temperature of 85°F, a median temperature of 74.32F and a minimum temperature of 56°F. Key West, Florida had a maximum temperature of 83°F, a median temperature of 74.49F and a minimum temperature of 62°F.  Miami and South Florida virtually matched the truly tropical element experienced annually in the Keys.

The Florida heat matched that experienced in Honolulu, Hawaii. Honolulu had a maximum temperature of 85°F, a median temperature of 74.09F and a minimum of 56°F. this is a truly out of the ordinary December. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the winter plays out. From my experience, we can expect a Ying yang change at some point in the upcoming next two months!

All predictions of what comes next should be prominently predicted in this thread!

My mean temperature for December 2021 was 63F. Extreme temps: 32.7 to 86F.

13 days during the month exceeded 80.

2.98 inches of precip.

Baton Rouge AP had a mean temp of 63.9 with ax max of 73.7 and av min of 54.1

New Orleans Int AP had a mean temp of 65.6 with av max of 73.6 and av min of 57.5.

 

This morning was an icy 30F at home so January is off to a radically different scenario.

College Station Texas zone 8b, Dec 2021.  Warmest December in 132 years, or since 1889 of 66.5F, or 13.4F above normal. Dec 1889 was 66.6F.

This comes after the coldest 5 day period in Feb 2021 since 1895.
