Connecticut is the Hottest

Connecticut is warming faster than anywhere in the United States as the average temperature has risen double the average for the lower 48 states. Warmer winters, lack of snow, changing jet streams, warming oceans all are phenomenon that contributes to this rapid atmospheric temperature growth in Connecticut. Climatologists’ projects winter temperatures will increase significantly above pre-industrial levels within 60 years. If that happens the summer climate in Connecticut by the end of the century will be the same as present day South Carolina. Temperatures in greater Hartford would exceed 100 degrees for 28 days a year.
