I found this nifty little climate website today. Someone has taken NCDC climate data and turned it into easy to read graphics. It displays overall changes in temperature and precipitation for each month since 1895. You can also see yearly and seasonal changes.
You can change the time period and data (temp & precip) including month and seasons.
It’s especially entertaining when you click a link on the right side of the page, it goes to the THE DAYS ARE NUMBERED blog. Or at least that’s what showed up on my view of it. But I came to the site just to see the maps. Interesting to note that summers in the past 100 years have been warming in the West, but slightly cooler in the southeast USA.
Don’t miss out on my favorite part…the graph view. Click on any climate zone (such as the Willamette Valley) and you can quickly see trends in temp and precip as a chart/graph pops up. For example, there is no significant trend in summer temps since 1970 here in the Valley, but a little warming in the past 100+ years.

1. POSTING LINKS/VIDEO:
It's okay to insert video or pictures, as long as the link points to something appropriate for the general public. No politics, obscenity, etc...
2. CHOOSE A NAME ONCE:
Choose a name or identification once and stick with it. The very first time you comment it is held for moderation. After it's approved, that EXACT name will be allowed to comment at any time. Note that this applies to your IP address too. So using the same name but on Grandma's computer will require a one-time hold as well. This keeps the spam out.
3. NO PROFANITY:
This is pretty obvious, but avoid being rude or taunting others too.
4. NO RACISM, OR VIOLENT THREATS:
This will get you kicked off quickly. Please report this to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if it happens here.
