Canada – Dec 2012 – 25 Coldest Stations – Whitehorse was 13.2C colder than normal

Update: See comments. Whitehorse was closer to -7C  to -8C colder than normal. Still top 3 in Canada for December 2012.

 

These are the 25 coldest stations (of the ones Environment Canada thinks are worth calculating anomalies for) in Canada for Dec 2012. The anomaly is calculated from the 1971-2000 normals.

13.2C colder than normal for Whitehorse Airport. Yukon data scraped from here.

Any mention in the news? You would think it would make the news wouldn’t you?

  1. There was only two points taken for Whitehorse last month. Since these two days were particularly cold ones, you get a low average. In reality, Whitehorse was probably about 8 degrees below normal for the month.
