100 Years of NOAA Contiguous US Climate Data – Extremes and Averages


“This book presents graphs of NOAA climate data for each of the 9 NOAA Climate Regions of the Contiguous United States, for the Contiguous United States as a whole, and for each of the 48 contiguous United States individually. More specifically, for the 100-year period of 1919 to 2018, this book presents time-series comparison graphs, along with their linear trends, of the highest of the monthly highs per year and the lowest of the monthly lows per year—the extremes—and also the averages per year for NOAA:

  • Precipitation (PCP) data (presented in inches),
  • Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) data, and
  • Near-surface air temperature (TMAX, TAVG, & TMIN) data (presented in degrees Fahrenheit)…

…for each of the Contiguous United States as a whole, for the 9 NOAA U.S. Climate Regions, and for each of the 48 (contiguous) States individually.” click here
