Recently, I showed images of the average record high and low statewide monthly temperature records. It also included small monthly graphs within each state boundary.
Below is an animation of the climate extreme high temperatures by month with shows both the monthly maximum temperatures records [magnitude] and the variability during the months over the U.S. "lower 48" geography. Records range from the mid-60°s to over 130°F. Data tables are shown here.
The next cut of the data that appears tomorrow will look at decadal high temperature record frequency, as opposed to monthly record magnitude, by state... in a animation similar to the one above. That will take the original timeline frequency chart posted here and create a geographic look over 13 decades to highlight where, when, and how concentrated the "hotspots" were.
