Is This a "Normal" Week?
Does it feel warmer or colder than last year at this time? Is this a normal spring or is it earlier or later than usual? What does your gut say? How could you verify this?

You could save all your weather data from year to year and compare it. Another way is to compare your hometown information with national weather and climate maps. Let's start by looking at just one week.

1) Find the week's average (mean) temperature in your hometown. Start on Sunday.

  • Look in your newspaper to get a daily average.

  • Add the daily averages and divide by 7 to get an average temperature for the week.
