Nunavut (northern Canada) was the coldest Province/Territory in May.
Environment Canada calculates “Normals” for a subset of stations. Those are the anomalies from the 1971-2000 average.
The following barplots are of the daily anomalies (TMax and TMin) for each Nunavut station (that have Normals) averaged together.
The coldest part of the month was 6 to 7C below the 1971-2000 average. So much for the overheating Arctic.
Yes Canada’s Arctic has warmed. I blogged about it most recently here. Many stations have a big spike around 2010.
What has happened since then?
I looked at Nunavut stations with Normals (anomalies) calculated by Environment Canada that have data for the last 3 years. (Most recent Nunavut Data Here. I’m looking at stations with data in column D)
Temperature is falling. From -8C to -12C per decade. Amazing.
Sure. Only 3 years. But did anyone else tell you this news? (Click to make bigger)
