New weather normal baseline data is adopted on July 1st

New Climate “Normals” Begin on July 1st – Warmer is the New Norm : NOAA Releases 2010 State of the Climate Report

Tomorrow the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will incorporate new baseline data reflecting new climate “normals” for 1981-2010. For the past decade baseline normals spanned the period from 1971-2000. These normals “serve as a 30 year baseline average of important climate variables that are used to understand average climate conditions at any location and serve as a consistent point…
