Buffalo Summer Weather Predictions in Year 2100

If current emissions trends continue, Buffalo summers could rival Florida’s by the year 2100, according to FastCoExist.com. If true, that would not bode well for cities located in warmer parts of the US. In fact, future Las Vegas dwellers would most likely be donning keffiyehs, because the summer temps would closer resemble those of Saudi Arabia. As for Buffalo, if the interactive map (see Climate Central) is an accurate predictor, then this city’s summer temps would climb from an average of 77 degrees F currently to a balmy 88 degrees F (think Delray Beach).

There are skeptics who believe that global warming is a bunch of hooey. Weather trends don’t necessarily add up when you consider that temperatures continue to fluctuate – a cursory look at longterm weather charts makes it difficult to see readily identifiable trends and patterns.

On the flip side, there are global warming believers who say that our future summers will indeed get progressively hotter. As for the cooler temperatures that we are experiencing? It’s due to Polar Vortex-esque weather patterns, thus cooler temperatures this summer and past winter. While this might be an anomaly, in general we have seen relatively mild winters as of late, when we couldn’t freeze a skating rink. Not to mention hot summers that made it unbearable to sleep at night without AC.

Whatever your beliefs are, the Climate Central interactive chart (click here) is an interesting look at what some believe is the direction that our weather is heading.
