Is still fatty fat fat:

We often hear temperature changes explained on a global scale, but just how are those changes playing out in your local temperatures? This calculator answers that question for every American state.

The new tool is the work of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center. Using data on average temperatures collected since 1895, you can look at how average, maximum, and minimum temperatures have shifted.

But, that data is not just available by year — you can also break it down further into winter, spring, summer, and fall, which is particularly useful as we hear more and more about temperatures busting through seasonal records. So, if you’re curious about how to contextualize new information about temperature changes in your area, you can see on a graph, for instance, how an average Texas winter would have felt over 100 years ago…

[…] To illustrate just how pervasive the changes are, the NCDC also put together a mapping tool that you can use to see the cumulative effect of how the averages have changed. For instance, look at this map of how far the average temperatures of 1901-1910 differed from 20th century norms…

  1. This summer worldwide was the hottest experienced since record keeping began in 1880. Then there’s California. The frequency of hurricanes will increase for the West Coast in the coming years due to climate change. At least Florida doesn’t have earthquakes massive yearly wild fires.
