USCRN TMAX off a cliff – as of July 2012

Anthony Watt from WUWT mentioned the USCRN in a recent post.

The USCRN is a new ‘state of the art’ United States Climate Reference Network.

So, I thought I would take a look at the monthly TMAX data (T_MONTHLY_MAX). I downloaded all the monthly files.

If there was enough data: I calculated an anomaly for each month for each station based on 2005 to 2009 mean. Yes, thats a short period, but the USCRN hasn’t been around long. I graphed the data. And I calculated the Trend for data from 2007 on.

Here is the trend for each station (with enough data) sorted by highest trend to lowest.  There are a few graphs at the bottom.

The mean of the trends was -2.34F / Decade
