Abnormal Normals: January In United States Now A Full Degree Warmer

Preliminary NOAA calculations of 1981-2010 United States climate data find that statewide averages of annual “normals” (averages) of maximum and minimum temperatures show that the 1981-2010 normals are warmer than the 1971-2000 for all lower 48 states. The largest temperature increase is in the month of January: the normal maximum temperature is now 0.9°F warmer, and the normal minimum temperature is 1.7°F warmer.
