There are maps for minimum temperature, maximum temperature, and precipitation. There are two types of data that can be displayed; maps for a particular month and year from 1895 to present, or climatology maps. The climatology maps represent average values from 1981 to 2010. These are also known as the "1981-2010 Normals." From National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
