Weather Anomalies -- the News-Makers!
Click through the images below to see temperature, precipitation, wind,
and cloudiness anomalies through 2018. Some highlights for each month are given below.
- Many parts of Australia were cooler than normal, although relative dryness still
covered most of the country
- Alasks, in contrast, experienced a relatively wet August -- just the beginning for
some interesting weather there!
- Russia's European heartland and eastern Ukraine experienced significantly more sunshine
than normal -- a nice break from the partly to mostly cloudy conditions the rest of the year

The maps and data are courtesy of the Copernicus Climate Change service.
The data is freely available (with a registered account) through the
Climata Data Store Toolbox
. The Toolbox includes a (beta) Python API that lets you generate
images, download files, and more with customized data processing.
A special thanks to all the scientists and developers whose
hard work has made amazing visualizations like these available to the public!
