The first eight months of 2006 was the warmest in the continental
United States since record-keeping began in 1895, NOAA officials
Above-average rainfall last month in the central and southwestern
parts of the country alleviated drought conditions in some areas,
but moderate-to-extreme drought continued to affect 40 percent
of the country, according to a statement from NOAA's National
Climatic Data Center.
The average June-August 2006 temperature for the contiguous
United States, based on preliminary data, was 2.4 degrees
Fahrenheit above the 20th century average of 72.1 degrees.
This summer, at an average of 74.5 degrees, was slightly cooler
than the record of 74.7 degrees set in 1936 during the Dust Bowl era.
Eight of the past 10 summers have been warmer than the U.S.
average for the same period going back to 1895.

If 2006 had the hottest summer and the winter of 2006-2007 turns out to be one of the coldest, wouldn't that even each other out?
