USCRN vs NOAA September 2012 update.

The USCRN is a new ‘state of the art’ United States Climate Reference Network. The USCRN “consists of 114 stations developed, deployed, managed, and maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the continental United States for the express purpose of detecting the national signal of climate change.”

This is the monthly Mean from both NOAA and USCRN for September 2012 for the 48 continental states.

16 states show USCRN stations warmer than NOAA (bold) and 32 show NOAA warmer than USCRN.

NOAA – USCRN = NOAA state temperature average minus USCRN state temperature average.

Ignoring area weighting, the NOAA temperature averaged 0.80F warmer than USCRN.
