Monthly Climatological Surface Air Temperature

This map shows an animation of monthly climatological surface air temperature (in °C) through the course of the year using the 1971-2000 base period.

Shading indicates the monthly climatological surface air temperature in units of °C. Contours are drawn at an interval of 5°C.
