      Siberia's scorching, degree temperature record made headlines in late June, but it was just the latest spike in a decade of historic heat waves across the Arctic that also set records for.   Five of the 10 largest fires in state record books have occurred since So has California’s third driest year since , as well as its third wettest year since , according to the.

    The services provided include historical climate data (hourly, daily or monthly for stations across Canada), historical radar images from 31 stations across Canada, Canadian climate normals (averages and extremes for nearly locations in Canada), Engineering Climate Datasets (IDF curves, CWEEDS -Weather Energy and Engineering Datasets, CWEC. Weather and climate extremes Extreme event - the occurrence of a value of a weather variable above (or below) a threshold value near the upper (or lower) ends of the range of its observed values in a specific region. Return period - An estimate of the average time interval between occurrences of an event (e.g., flood or extreme.

    Australia's extreme bushfire season was at least 30 per cent more likely than a century ago because of climate change, and the risks of a repeat will rise four-fold if global temperatures exceed a. As vacations end and many parts of the world prepare to head back to school and work, a little reeducation may be in order. We recently shared our favorite books for budding environmentalists, but if your tastes skew a little older, we’ve got you Day Network pulsed its staff for their favorite books on the environment, and here’s what they’re recommending this season.

These maps, which are produced by the Applied Climate Information System (ACIS), show recent precipitation and temperature patterns on a regional or nationwide basis.

Normals used on the departure and percent of normal maps are for the period These types of information include record temperatures, record precipitation and snowfall, climate extremes statistics, and other derived climate products.

Temperature, Precipitation, and Drought This collection of tools builds on monthly values of temperature, precipitation, and several drought indices for each of the climate divisions in. State Climate Extremes Committee The State Climate Extremes Committee (SCEC) is an ad hoc committee established to evaluate the climatological records of individual states.

The program was created in to provide a comprehensive evaluation of observations, which may have tied or exceeded existing statewide all-time record values.

Miscellaneous: Daily Normals and Records: Sunrise/Sunset Times. Climate data web site is a gateway to information on matters such as past weather, climate normals, historical radar, almanac averages and extremes, and engineering climate data. Past weather data includes: temperature, snow, snow on ground, precipitation, rain, wind speed and direction, heating and cooling degree days, visibility, humidex, wind chill and relative humidity in Canada.

^ Height above sea level is the usual choice of definition for elevation. The point farthest away from the centre of the Earth, however, is Chimborazo in Ecuador (6, m (20, feet)). This is due to the Earth's oblate spheroid shape, with points near the Equator being farther out from the centre than those at the poles.

^ All temperatures from the World Meteorological Organization. About Climate Normals Maps. Climate normals are an arithmetic average of a variable such as temperature over a prescribed year period. This base period changes every 10 years to reflect the previous 30 years of data.

For more information on climate normals, view the National Centers for Environmental Information's Climate Normals page.

Monthly statistics are only included if there are more than 10 years of data. The number of years (provided in the 2nd last column of the table) may differ between elements if the observing program at the site changed.

More detailed data for individual sites can be obtained by contacting the Bureau. Average monthly maximum, minimum, and mean temperatures; average monthly precipitation; and degree days for select Florida stations.

A climate normal is defined, by convention, as the arithmetic mean of a climatological element computed over three consecutive methodology employed to generate the normals is not the same as in previous normals, as it addresses.

Data show that dramatic climate changes, heat, and weather extremes are already impacting people, damaging crops and coastlines, and putting food, water, and energy security at risk. Across the three regions studied in this report, record-breaking temperatures are occurring more frequently, rainfall has increased in intensity in some places.

Monthly statistics are only included if there are more than 10 years of data. The number of years (provided in the 2nd last column of the table) may differ between elements if the.

The latter is a distinct possibility, as Mark Lynas’s new book, Our Final Warning, makes painfully clear. Lynas is a British journalist and activist, and inin the run-up to the Copenhagen climate conference, he published a book titled Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet.

His new volume echoes that earlier work, which was by no. A national record, however, is out of reach due to the lack of an El Niño, a periodic climatic event that appeared last year and spurred extra heat.

But the fingerprint of climate. NOWData (NOAA Online Weather Data) provides access to climate data for each National Weather Service forecast area in the Northeast. Products include climate normals, daily almanac, first/last dates, graphs, and daily and monthly summaries of temperature, precipitation, snowfall.

From NCDC -- "The new CD Atlas contains color maps of climatic elements such as temperature, precipitation, snow, wind, pressure, etc., chosen to portray the climate of the US. The period of record of the data for most of the maps is "The user may install the Atlas onto a local drive, or run the Atlas from the CD.

The summer of has rewritten the record books. Using our record temperature tracker (see below), which draws on the National Climatic Data .The effects of warming are already being seen and will become more extreme as temperature rise.

Climate has changed throughout Earth history. Much of the time Earth’s climate was hotter and more humid than it is today, but climate has also been colder, as when glaciers covered much more of the planet.
