Abstract:
The State of the Climate is a collection of periodic summaries recapping climate-related occurrences on both a global and national scale. The State of the Climate Monthly Overview - Global Analysis report summarizes global observations of surface and upper-air temperature and precipitation data and places the data into historical perspective. The Global Analysis report provides monthly, seasonal, and annual climate summaries, covering the topics: Global Surface Temperature, Global precipitation, Global Sea Surface Temperature, El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), (Lower and Mid) Tropospheric Temperatures, (Lower) Stratospheric Temperatures, Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Extent (seasonal), and Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice Extent (seasonal). The first annual report was presented in 1997, and monthly and annual reports are available thereafter. Summary reports are often included with the final month of the period, for example, the (boreal) spring report is issued along with May. "Year-to-date" reports are also often available for months that don't end a meteorological season. This State of the Climate report provides decision-makers at all levels of the public and private sectors with data and information on climate trends and variability each month, season, and year for the United States, including perspectives on how the climate of today compares to the past.

How to cite: A suggested citation is provided at the bottom of each online report. Users should modify according to their writing style. Please note that State of the Climate reports are based upon operational datasets. The official operational datasets chosen for the report can and do change over time. The nature of these changes can be evolutionary, such as addition of previously-missing data or changes due to quality-assurance algorithms. Changes may also be revolutionary, in that a new version of an operational dataset, or a different dataset altogether, are adopted for official use. In any of these cases, the values presented in the State of the Climate reports reflect those known at the time, using the official dataset at the time. Values are not updated or edited within past reports, unless otherwise noted, even if the underlying official dataset has since changed.
