Monthly CAMS Station Surface Air Temperature Percentile

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

Stations with monthly temperature values in the highest (warmest) 20% to 10% of the climatological distribution for that month of the year are shown as orange dots, and stations with values in the highest 10% of the climatological distribution are shown as red dots. Stations with monthly temperature values in the lowest (coolest) 20% to 10% of the climatological distribution for that month of the year are shown as light blue dots, and stations with values in the lowest 10% of the climatological distribution are shown as dark blue dots. All other stations with values between these extremes are indicated with a cream color. The climatological base period is 1971-2000.

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).
