NOAA report on contiguous states:
Average temperature for December was 30.2 F, which is 3.2 F cooler than the average from 1901 to 2000.
As this thread has commented--this has been associated with the deepest solar minimum since 1913, which has not been included in the mainstream "modeling".
This minimum completed by September. Solar physicists who made the call on the deep minimum consider that the next increase in the solar cycle will be modest and nowhere near previous levels reached with the highest activity in a thousand years.
