Climatologies

These climatologies give the monthly (or seasonal) behavior in an average year for temperature, precipitation, and wind.

This map shows an animation of monthly climatological precipitation frequency -- the average number of days per month with measurable precipitation -- for the 1971-2000 base period.
This map shows an animation of the month-to-month change in monthly climatological precipitation (in mm/month) through the course of the year based on CAMS-OPI data using the 1981-2010 base period.
This map shows the percentage of annual precipitation that occurs during the indicated 3-month season, based upon climatological precipitation using the 1981-2010 base period from the monthly CPC Merged Analysis of Precipitation (CMAP) dataset.
