We set records, again. Setting records has become the new normal, but normal should be the same number of record highs and record lows. Not much else to say except, the US is warming up.

December 2015 was record warm for the contiguous U.S., with a temperature of 38.6°F, 6.0°F above the 20th century average. This broke the previous record of 37.7°F set in 1939. Record warmth engulfed the eastern half of the nation, where 29 states had the warmest December on record. Near- to below-average December temperatures were observed in the West. No state was record cold.” – NOAA
