Average Temperature Anomalies

The following table shows, for about 180 long-term stations, how its Dec-Feb 2015-16 Average Temperature stacks up against normal, and where it ranks among that station's history. The unusualness score is based upon the number of standard deviations difference between this season's value and the station's average, based on the station's history.

For a visual presentation, click a station's rank for a "Haywood plot" that shows its cumulative value for each year it has been reporting. As you read from left to right, a particular season's trace represents the average of all previous days during that season. Because of the nature of these graphics, the first few days and weeks can appear quite noisy.
