Canada January 2014 – Monthly Anomalies Mapped

I have mapped the January 2014 anomalies in the Environment Canada monthly summaries that have “normals”. The anomalies are calculated from selected stations based on the 1971-2000 average.

The size if the dot represents the size of the anomaly. The 5C black dot in the top left hand corner represents 5C difference from “normal”. Red dots are warmer than normal. Blue are cooler. And Green are 0.

Not much sign of the Polar Vortex in BC and Alberta for January. A big change from December.

  1. looks right, my climate station south of Calgary had -5.1C, normal over the last 23 years is -7.7C, and yes, I loved it!!! 30cm of snow though vs. 16 cm average.

    • Thanks. I checked my station (Nanaimo). It seemed colder. But not as cold as the last couple of weeks here.
