Four weeks of climate data: Southern Tropics Temperature Recap
As a general rule, it would be fair to say that the most extreme warming is happening in the Arctic Circle and Western Antarctica. The Western Antarctic warm zone doesn't seem to be radiating out much heat to nearby areas, which is not surprising when you see how far away anything "nearby the Antarctic really is and when you consider the harsh seas and skies that surround the South Pole.
The Southern Tropics have no slice that gets near our somewhat arbitrary level of 1° C rise in temperature over the 56 year period we have chosen to look at, based on Strong La Niña currents.
Tomorrow, our last region, the southern temperate zone, with even more water and less land mass than the southern tropics.
