January-August 2019 Record Setters


The stations shown on the map below had one of their three warmest, coolest, wettest or driest first halves of the year (January through August) on record. Stations with a bold white circle saw values that exceed any previous Jan-Aug value at the station's current location. The smaller circles indicate outcomes that were 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 very likely many addtional stations having "top three" or "bottom three" season not depicted here. The stations under consideration are listed in other supplemental pages (temperature, precipitation).
