A massive contrast in temperature anomalies between the exceptionally cold east of North America (-14°C), and a tongue of warm anomalies that extends from northern Russia (+17°C) southwest across Europe to Iberia, during the first six days of the New Year as you can see in this chart (fig 1).

One thought on “Contrasting northern hemisphere temperatures”

  1. Yesterday morning there was an approximately 8c difference between my location and my brothers, about 20 miles to the west.
    At 08:00 it was about +4c at the coast, but further in land it was -4c. Apparently it didn’t get much above freezing all day, while it was 4-5c at the coast.
