Sometimes during the frigid days of winter it becomes harder to appreciate that weather does not equal climate. From Gizmodo:
Recently updated by New Scientist to roll in the most recent of NASA’s climate data, the map allows you to pin-point your location and see how temperatures have changed over the past 100 years. As well as providing a map of the changes in a spatial sense, you’ll also see how the five-year average has changed with time at your location, and how that compares to the global average.
A snapshot of the interactive map below shows that our region has seen significant warming compared to the 1951-1980 average and even more so since the early 20th century.
