Abstract:Several years ago, mean charts of temperature and precipitation were prepared for the upper Midwest by the North Central Regional Climate Center, based on 1951-1980 data (Wendland et al., 1985). Since the World Meteorological Organization and the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) recommend updating 30-year averages each decade for the construction of climatic mean (normal) values, the following analyses are presented for 1961-1990 data for the nine states included in the region of the Midwestern Climate Center. The data used for the analysis are observations from NWS Offices and Forecast Offices, as well as NWS Cooperative sites, acquired from the Midwest Climate Information System, located at the Illinois State Water Survey, Champaign. Data density varied upwards from about 60 stations per state.
