US Temperatures: April 2012 vs April 2013

What a difference a year makes! WELL BELOW NORMAL APRIL ACROSS THE US!


What I find interesting is that the center of the "colder than average" area has stayed virtually the same since the beginning of the year.

Here are the April temperatures compared to the average across North America

 Once we include MARCH AND APRIL, the map looks virtually identical

How about FEBRUARY, MARCH and APRIL? Little change in the map

The entire year from JANUARY through APRIL shows how the center of the cold evolved over the last 4  months

The BIG QUESTION will be whether or not the CORE OF THE COLDER THAN NORMAL AIR breaks down, drifts west or east or expands?  More on this later.....

Temperature Ranks this Spring

Just ran the temperature numbers since March 15th. Where does this year's spring temperatures rank so far? Not very warm as you probably thought...79th out of the 143 years of record keeping in Cleveland.

I also circled the warmest and coldest 3/1 to 4/28 periods on the handy little chart below.
