Yes, January Was Cold, But...

This graph from The New York Times shows the daily high and low temperatures for Portland, Oregon and compares the yearly average temperature to the historical average to find that Portland last year was, on average, more than 2 degrees hotter than normal in 2016.

My other adopted hometown, São Paulo, Brazil was more than 5 degrees hotter and precipitation was more than 19 inches less than normal.  Ouch.
