Trends in extreme daily surface temperatures in California, 1950-2005

Auteur :
BOHR, G.S.

Description :
Daily observations of maximum and minimum temperatures from NWSCOOP (National Weather Service Cooperative Observer Program) stations are used to examine trends in the magnitude and frequency of extreme daily maximum (TMAX) and minimum (TMIN) surface temperatures in California for the period 1950-2005. Significant trends are found in both TMAX and TMIN but are more prevalent in minimum temperature. Significant trends in temperature extremes are well distributed across the state, with little clustering. Urban sites have larger numbers of significant trends, but trend magnitudes are generally similar at urban and rural sites.
