Here are some new reanalysis (R1) rankings for the December 2015 - February 2016 (DJF) climatological winter. The values in the maps below compare the this most recent DJF period with every previous DJF period going back to the winter of 1948-1949. Whenever you see a dark red color, it represents the highest value on record (68 years). A white color represents the lowest value on record. Here are the maps. A companion blog post with global perspective maps is found HERE.
