Monthly CAMS Station Surface Air Temperature Anomaly

This map shows monthly CAMS station surface air temperature anomalies for the globe with respect to the 1971-2000 climatological base period.

Monthly temperature anomalies are given in units of °C based upon temperature anomaly values from the CAMS station dataset. The climatological base period is 1971-2000. Yellow, orange, and red dots on the map indicate where station temperature was above the long-term normal for the month, and dots in shades of blue indicate where temperature was below normal.

The data used in this map are from the NOAA Climate Prediction Center's CAMS station temperature anomaly dataset. "CAMS" is an acronym for the "Climate Anomaly Monitoring System" in use at the Climate Prediction Center (CPC).
