Note: new version is available!
How to read the map:
Warm spell duration index is defined as a period (number of days) of six consecutive days with the mean daily temperature exceeding 90th percentile of the baseline temperature (average daily temperature the 1961-1990 period).
Stations with negative trends are blue and stations with positive trends are in red colour. When stations are in green colour trends are not statistically significant at 25% level.
The circle size depicts the magnitude of change per decade.
