High and low temperature records should even out each year according to a UCAR study. That’s not happening. Here’s more from the study as posted on Climate Central:

“The study used computer models to project how the records ratios might shift in future decades as the amount of greenhouse gases in the air continues to increase. The results showed that the ratio of daily record highs to daily record lows in the lower 48 states could soar to 20-to-1 by mid-century, and 50-to-1 by 2100.”

Granted, the year isn’t over yet but for the first half of 2012 and for future years, it’s not looking very promising. [Climate Central]
