Calculating new "climate normals"

"The U.S. Climate Normals collection has 10 versions: 1901-1930, 1911-1940 and so on through 1991-2020... we’ve compared the U.S. annual average temperature during each Normals period to the 20th-century average (1901-2000). The influence of long-term global warming is obvious: The earliest map in the series has the most widespread and darkest blues, and the most recent map has the most widespread and darkest reds." - Excerpt from NOAA.
