2019 Record Setters

The stations shown on the map below had one of their three warmest, coolest, wettest or driest calendar years on record. Stations with a bold white shape saw values that exceed any previous annual value at the station's current location. The smaller marks 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).
