2011: Half the Year in the Northwestern USA

One of the main reasons I am breaking the year down in the way that I am is to really show the difference between temperature anomaly data and temperature data. It also highlights the issue related to the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect. I have been comparing the temperature of Boise, Idaho to that of McCall, Idaho. The two places are ~100 miles apart and share the same weather. A warm front will cause both places to warm up and a cold front the reverse. This is easily shown in the daily temperature data for both locations year to date.
