Description :
The spatial and temporal variation of the C/D Köppen climate boundary in the central United States is examined for the period 1900 to 1999. The C/D climate boundary is determined by differences in winter conditions. It represents the equatorward edge of a persistent snow cover during winter. The most anomalous feature for the decadal maps is the distinct southerly location of the C/D boundary for the recent decade of the 1970s. This study does not provide evidence of a trend toward wintertime warming and a northerly migration of the C/D climate boundary within the central United States.
