MN Temperature Average (1961-1990)

This data set depicts 30-year averages (1961-1990) of monthly and annual temperatures for Minnesota. Isolines and regions were created using kriging and latticecontour operations on temperature point data from a 5-state area. Data is stored in a regions model, with separate regions for each monthly and annual 30-year average (e.g., region.apr represents the average April temperatures across Minnesota for the period 1961-1990).
