Largest Month to Month Change

Posted: 06 Jun 2018 05:35 AM

Yesterday's feature looked into the month to month change between April and May showing the exception departure it was from the climatology. For some locations, it was more than just exceptional but the largest on record. The featured map displays the largest *positive* month to month change in average temperature. The values plotted in red indicate that this year's change between April and May was the largest on record. These areas were likely helped to achieve the record by having substantial snow cover in April depressing temperatures for the month and allowing for a larger contrast into May.

Good = 11
Bad = 3
