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.
