Observed Seasonal Variation of Mean Air Temperature and Trend
Observed Seasonal Variation of Mean Precipitation and Trend
Runoff and Trend
Annual Cycle of Precipitation at MD and VA has MAX in the Summer and MIN in the Autumn.
This makes our climate so nice.
The most important observed century scale climatic trends Summer and MIN in the Autumn.
at Maryland and Virginia
