In U.S., Far Fewer Say Temperatures Are Warmer Than Usual
PRINCETON, NJ -- Well under half of Americans (34%) think that temperatures in their local area have been warmer than usual this winter -- compared with 79% who reported warmer temperatures last year.
Data from the National Climatic Data Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that, while December of this winter was slightly warmer than December 2011, January's and February's average national temperatures this year were significantly colder than in 2012 (31.90 degrees in January of this year compared with 36.20 last January, and 34.78 in February this year compared with 37.74 last February). Thus, the shift in Americans' perceptions appears to reflect real-world change.
