Sea Ice Extent (Global Antarctic and Arctic) – Day 30 – 2016

A quick look at fluctuations in Antarctica Sea Ice. Notice how over the last 11 years on day 30 it can fluctuate by up to 1.5 million sq km every 2- 3 years?

But the trend is still up.

10 MORE Random Canadian Tmax from 1980

A few days I published 10 more randomly chosen graphs of TMAX using Environment Canada’s monthly summaries.

I was fiddling with the graphing code to add the overall rate of temp change and color the title – red for warming and blue for cooling.

I took a closer look at 3 stations (2 are airports).

Tmax temperatures falling at -.414C /dec, -.224/dec and -.246/dec

April Tmax in Brandon have fallen 7C in 35 years.
