USCRN vs NOAA August 2012

USCRN vs NOAA August 2012 update. (I’m late because USCRN didn’t post August monthly temperatures until October 3rd after they posted September data).

The USCRN is a new ‘state of the art’ United States Climate Reference Network. The USCRN “consists of 114 stations developed, deployed, managed, and maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the continental United States for the express purpose of detecting the national signal of climate change.”

This is the monthly Mean from both NOAA and USCRN for August 2012 for the 48 continental states.

14 states show USCRN stations warmer than NOAA (bold) and 34 show NOAA warmer than USCRN.

NOAA – USCRN = NOAA state temperature average minus USCRN state temperature average.

Ignoring area weighting, the NOAA temperature averaged 0.83F warmer than USCRN.
