May 2014 – Canada is Cooling at -0.32C Per Decade Since 1998

Filed under: Canada,Environment Canada Data — sunshinehours1 @ 5:13 AM
Tags: ,

Environment Canada publishes monthly summaries here. The data included Tmax, Tmean, Tmin and Normals (the D column). The Normals column is “Mean Temperature difference from Normal (1971-2000) (°C)”. These are supposedly the higher quality stations. Only some of the stations get a Normals value.

I could just look at the stations with Normals and summarize the data. But some of the stations are close together. So I thought why not summarize the data by 1×1 grid square and then summarize the grid squares.

Correction: I left the green line out of these graphs –   The green line is the count of grid squares with data in them. That is dropping like a stone. (I will discuss this in another post).

And why not see what happens from 1998. We know 1998 is a pivot point in climate.

The trend for the whole country from 1998 is cooling at -0.32C/decade. Saskatchewan and Manitoba are cooling at over -.8 C /decade.  Wow.

Here are the trends for each province.

All Provinces -0.32 C/decade
ALTA -0.61
BC -0.3 
MAN -0.86 
NB 0.06 
NFLD 0.15

Filed under: AMO,Antarctic Sea Ice — sunshinehours1 @ 12:47 PM
Tags: , , , ,

The graph is in thise post compares sea ice extent for just one day of each year – 138 to the AMO for the month day 138 is in – in this case May. There isn’t any AMO data for May 2014 yet.

AMO data comes from NOAA, Sea Ice data comes from NSIDC.

The red is the  May AMO – Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation. The blue is Antarctic Sea Ice Extent just for day 138.

The dashed lines are the liner trends for each.
