NOAA Will Soon Start Using the New Normal

NOAA is making their usual 30 year average update in May. But they will also start a new 15 year average that will allow more recent changes to be used by industries.

Dear X-Air and WeatherCat climate watchers,

NOAA is making their usual 30 year average update in May. But they will also start a new 15 year average that will allow more recent changes to be used by industries.
. . . .

Thanks for sharing.  It is interesting that it could lull people into not taking heat waves as seriously.  Quoting from the article with respect to Phoenix weather:  "We're going to have to remind people, especially this year, 'Hey, if we're at 115, that is 5 degrees above the average. But remember that this average has changed,"

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
