National Climate Report - February 2015
Winter Record Setters
The stations shown on the map below had one of their three warmest, coolest, wettest or driest winters on record during December 2014 through February 2015 time period. Stations with a bold white circle recorded winter values that exceed any previous Dec-Feb value at the station's current location. Smaller circles indicate winter 2014/15 outcomes that are 2nd or 3rd place among a station's history.
Please note: in order to avoid many overlapping or crowded dots in a region, a subset of only about 200 stations across the United States were considered. There are surely many stations having "top three" or "bottom three" years that are not depicted here. These rankings are based upon unadjusted daily data.
