Temperatures Are Rising Locally; Rainfall Trends Are More Complicated

If you want to get an idea of what’s happening with climate change locally, one piece of evidence is the summaries assembled by the National Weather Service in Tampa.
Forget the rankings on whether last month was the hottest or the third hottest of the tenth hottest September on record.
Look at the fact that the majority of the hottest Septembers in the area have-occurred within the past 20 to 30 years. and the majority of the coolest Septembers occurred more than 50 years ago.
Rainfall records are more complicated because the showers are scattered throughout the region and whether it happens to rain at a specific weather station is a matter of chance except in moths where there is widespread rainfall as a result of tropical weather or similar weather patterns.
