(CNN) -- March 2012 will go down as the warmest March in the United States since record-keeping began in 1895, NOAA said Monday.

In addition, the three-month period of January, February and March was the warmest first quarter ever recorded in the Lower 48 states. The average was 42 degrees Fahrenheit, a whopping 6 degrees above the long-term average.

A staggering 15,292 warm temperature records were broken, (7,755 record highs and 7,517 record high overnight lows), according to Chris Vaccaro, spokesperson for NOAA. "That's tremendously excessive. The scope and the scale of warmth was really unprecedented, Vaccaro said.

A persistent weather pattern during the month of March led to 25 states east of the Rockies having their warmest March on record, NOAA said. That same pattern was responsible for cooler-than-average conditions in the West Coast states of Washington, Oregon and California, they said.

It got up to 81 degrees here in SW Michigan one day....which is 40 degrees higher than normal!
Of course it's only 29 dgrees this morning-and all that warm weather made the fruit trees blossum-and frost killed a lot of the would be fruit-which means that the farmers are screwed-which means I'm screwed,because I work in a canning factory-and cherries are our cash crop.  Bluesad

Sounds like half the U.S. saw the warmest March on record, and the other half saw it cooler than average . . . which makes the headline a little misleading.

Temperatures...rainfall...storms...all these have fluctuated throughout history. It kinda gets me that this generation seems to think anything that happens has never happened before.

I think the weather is just having mood swings at this point before it settles on angry hot.

I don't get it. The article didn't say anything except that it was a record-breaking March, and people are up in arm like there was an explicit global-warming agenda. Did I miss something?

Anyway, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the last four months have been unseasonably warm across the entire northern hemisphere. All you have to do is go to weather.com and do an unbiased random search. Choose ten northern hemisphere locations at random, choose ten dates over the last six months at random and you will see that the temps are well above average. I've done it for far more than 10 and it's pretty obvious, it's been unseasonably warm.

As for the cause, I haven't the foggiest.

The press always  has an agenda. 'Recorded  History?'  WTF, The history of weather was  only recorded  since 1895, what about  all these  archeological  and fossil  records, which go back millions  of years and show proof of massive  temprature  changes over millenium?  This is  just more  hysterical , in the case left-wing, proganda, nothing more  or less.

Every day is record breaking in some way.  They choose what they report.

The records don't mean a single thing given the paucity of "recorded data."  The whole thing is a straw man to even discuss "record breaking."

Tracy made the million dollar comment above.  The current generation(s) is alarmingly preoccupied with superlatives.  Everything has to be the warmest, the fastest, the coldest, the biggest, etc.  I find it alarming, anyway, and at the same time, a little amusing.

It just seems like their is a knee-jerk reaction going on. There was nothing even mentioned about global warming or climate change unless I missed something. All of a sudden accusations of liberal agendas are coming out of the woodwork. It all seems rather "conspiracy theory" to me, that's all.

Do they mention the records of "fastest cooling from 6:00 pm to 7:00" and "biggest wind gust with a dew point above 73 degrees"?

No.

Why not?

There is no significant "association" of that data in the minds of the readers.  A lot of the data they don't report may well be of more meteorologic significance than the data they do report.

They are milking the 'global warming' psychology whether they mention it or not.  They cherry pick which of this kind of news they report, and none of these records mean much of anything.  However, in the choosing, they are, intentionally or not, manipulating what is on the consciousness of the readers.

Well, okay, I supposed that might be going on. All I'm saying is that it has been a verifiable record-breaking heat year. Are they not allowed to report the noteworthiness of that? I mean, it is a perfectly valid thing to report, is it not? I swear, everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, is too damn sensitive about the news.

I find the whole "Global Warming" debate interesting.
No doubt-things are changing.
But politics wont change it.
Nothing will.
Watch it and check it out.
I find it fascinating.
I'm alive at a pivotal point in earth history.
I like it.
As far as it being a threat to the human race-so what.
Were not that great.

Well, not to me.  I think it's a waste of time.  What's the "news" with "it's hot outside."  Big flipping deal.

But hey, as long as they are talking about this and not mentioning one single word about Andrew Wordes, all's right with the world, eh?

I don't think I was suggesting that it should be front page news, but I guess I'll just have to respectfully disagree. I think a record heat wave that affected the majority of the Northern hemisphere is worthy of reporting, with or without an agenda. I guess I'm a flaming liberal now.
