Severe weather and climate change

September 7, 2010

I was looking up a severe weather alert (45 MPH winds tonight) and stumbled on an interesting data visualization. The picture is of the deviation between the average temperature last month with it’s 30 year average.

I think it’s interesting that Russia seems to have the most severe deviation of any place on earth. Obviously, Russia is a large area of land, but why isn’t there a similar hot to cold to hot deviation in the western hemisphere?

.. oh, and I saw an albino squirrel today (not a joke).
