Second Week of Surface Temperature Field Campaign


This second week of the surface temperature field campaign has seem probably the warmest temperatures that we have seen in any field campaign in the eastern United States. I was at Ida Middle School in Michigan yesterday and the kids were outside in short sleeve shirts. The student was a little cold but it wasn’t terrible. Some years there is 200 mm of snow on the ground.

We have had 26 schools, 8 countries and 9 US states enter 414 observations. Roswell-Kent Middle School is leading the pack with 83 observations. Main Street School in Ohio and Crestwood High School in Michigan are keeping up.

Here are the schools that have submitted data so far in the campaign.

Here is a map of the observations entered since December 1. If you haven’t entered your data yet, don’t worry. We will still take your observations.

 

Here is a map from December 2, 2015 showing the surface temperature observations. I did not take the time or land cover type of the observations into account. The time of day can affect the temperature as can the type of land cover. Amazingly, as you can see, the temperatures are surprisingly similar with only a difference of 10 C across the entire area.
