chescowx Posted January 2, 2020 Report Share Posted January 2, 2020 So in analyzing completed decade data in the Chester County PA data set we see the following highlighted Trends. The Decade of 2010-19 was the 4th straight decade with increasing temperatures - which followed 4 straight decades of decreasing temperatures. Sounds kind of cyclical! This decade was the warmest decade in the data set with the current decade outpacing the previous warm decade (1910-19) by an average of 0.22 degrees or an increase of 0.4% This was also the snowiest decade on record besting the previous all-time snowiest decade with an average of 45.5" of snow per year. This eclipses the previous snowiest decade of 1900-1909 by 0.4 inches or 0.8% increase from the previous snowiest decade. Interesting to note that the coldest decade 1970-79 recorded the least average snowfall while the warmest decade 2010-19 saw the most snow. What will the future changing climate bring us? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
