A series of maps showing current month (see following notes) and most recent 12 months average temperature, corresponding 12 months percentiles, climatology and 1- & 3-month outlooks.


Temperature Anomaly

Temperature Percentiles

Monthly Climatology


Notes: All monthly temperature analyses are based on 344 Climate Divisions (CD). The temperature analysis for the current month is based on preliminary daily values valid for the CD based on a regression from scarce station data within each CD, station data that is selected because it is the best available in near real time. The procedure was developed by Heddinghaus (CPC) and is used in several other near real time CPC products, such as Palmer Index, heating degree days etc etc ".
Anomaly: from 1971-2000 Climatology (unit: oC)
Ranking Percentile: from 1932-last year
