ClimateCenter: The New Normals


What we’ve known as “normals” for our climate during the past decade will very likely change soon. That’s because government scientists are busy determining what’s been the average temperature and precipitation for thousands of U.S. locations during the past 30-year period. Much like the U.S. Census, the re-calculation takes place once every decade to reflect recent climate trends.

The new climate “normals” will provide key information for decisions we make in the future, ranging from what we plant, what we pay for energy, and even where we take a vacation.

Climate Central’s Dr. Heidi Cullen explains in this edition of ClimateCenter.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
