    I am replying to your post at stevegoddard.

    There are natural occurring areas of open sea ice where heat can escape from areas covered by sea ice. Besides lead there are also Polynas, that are areas of open water. It is where whales come up for air and there polar bears are common.

    Mike, you asked me to come here.

    You can follow the information yourself. Use Wund@r Gr0und since it is run by someone aligned with h@nsen and co.

    Check the temps at a really rural station from dawn til ~2hrs after sunrise.
    record the actual low.
    Then check that the low temperature stays the same over the year.

    Sometimes it changes within 24 hours sometimes not. Sometimes it changes more than once.

    My station is less than fifteen years old so there should be ZERO issues with it that require ‘Adjusting’ the temperature.

    I noticed this rather casually and want others to verify I am not seeing things, but I doubt it.

    Thanks Gail,

    I’ll check into some local stations. I was hoping you had documentation of changes like that. Something as simple as an excel sheet with notes on it of unusual changes might be enough to start writing letters to find out why the changes are occurring. Are you saying Wunderground is changing their data, or NOAA is?
