October Climate Anomalies Log

Heat Indicators log for October months

This post is the eighth in a set for the 12 calendar months that began with March. Graphs are sixteen-year logs of the monthly mean anomaly values of nine climate variables for Manilla, NSW, with fitted trend lines. I have explained the method in notes at the foot of the page.

This series of posts gets more than its share of views. This is strange, as they contain little information. Comparing graphs for adjacent months shows widely different values and trends. In due course, I will compare all twelve months with each other. Perhaps that will yield interesting results, or perhaps not.

Raw anomaly values for October

Extreme values of October anomalies in this period were all in the “Moisture Indicators” group:

Cloudy days % anomalies (2) +31%: October 2010, 2011;
Dew Point Anomalies (5) +3.9°: October 1999, -3.9°: October 2002, -6.6°: October 2012, -7.8°: October 2013, -5.9°: October 2014.
Moisture Index (2) -3.1°: October 2012, -3.2°: October 2013.

Trend lines for October

Heat Indicators

The trend lines of daily maximum, mean and minimum temperature anomalies all had an early trough in 2001, a peak near 2006, and a trough near 2011. The daily minimum trend had the longer period and the larger amplitude. The subsoil temperature trend peaked early, in 2001, and had a very broad trough around 2009.

September Climate Anomalies Log

Heat Indicators log for September months

This post is the seventh in a set for the 12 calendar months that began with March. Graphs are sixteen-year logs of the monthly mean anomaly values of nine climate variables for Manilla, NSW, with fitted trend lines. I have explained the method in notes at the foot of the page.

Raw anomaly values for September

Extreme values of September anomalies in this period were all in the “Moisture Indicators” group:

Temperature range anomaly (minus) +3.6 deg: September 2010;
Cloudy days % anomaly +33%: September 2010;
Dew Point Anomalies (4) -3.8 deg: September 2011, -4.7 deg: September 2012, -4.9 deg: September 2013, -4.1 deg: September 2014.

Trend lines for September

Heat Indicators

The trend of daily maximum temperature anomalies was concave, with a minimum at 2007. The trend of mean temperature anomalies was similar, but less concave. The trend of minimum temperature anomaly was almost straight, but had a weak maximum in 2008 and ended low. The subsoil temperature anomaly trend was parallel to that of the daily maximum, but higher.

Dew Point Anomaly -4.5 deg: August 2012.

Trend lines for August

Heat Indicators

The trend of mean temperature anomalies was almost constant. The trend of daily maximum temperature anomalies was almost constant, but had a weak minimum at 2007. The trend of minimum temperature anomaly had a weak minimum in 2001 and a weak maximum in 2010. The subsoil temperature anomaly trend ended very high, after a weak minimum in 2005.

Trend lines for July

Heat Indicators

The trend of mean temperature anomalies fell below zero in 2003 then rose to +1 by 2014.
The trend of daily maximum temperature anomalies fell more slowly to -0.5 in 2007, then rose to meet the mean in 2014. The trend of minimum temperature anomaly reached an early minimum in 2002. It rose to a broad peak (+1.4) in 2010, then declined. The subsoil temperature anomaly trend was slightly low in 2004 and very high (+1.9) in 2013.Moisture Indicators log for July months

June Climate Anomalies Log

Heat Indicators log for June months

This post is the fourth in a set for the 12 calendar months. Graphs are sixteen-year logs of the monthly mean anomaly values of nine climate variables for Manilla, NSW, with fitted trend lines. I have explained the method in notes at the foot of the page.

Raw anomaly values for June

Extreme values of June anomalies in this period were:
Daily Maximum Temperature anomaly -3.5 deg: June 2007;
Daily Minimum Temperature anomaly +3.1 deg: June 2009;
Subsoil Temperature anomaly +3.2 deg: June 2013;
Rainfall Anomaly +65 mm: June 2005
Temperature range anomaly (minus) +4.1 deg: June 2007;

Percent Cloudy Days +40%: June 2013.

Trend lines for June

Heat Indicators

The trend of mean temperature rose from zero at first to stay at 0.5 deg from 2004 to 2010, then rose again.
The trends of daily maximum and daily minimum temperature anomalies were mirror-reversed about the mean trend line. The maximum line reached a peak in 2003 and a trough in 2009, while the minimum line did the reverse. The subsoil temperature anomaly trend was slightly low in 2004 and was high in 2014.
