Figure 2: Seasonally averaged temperatures for two climatic regimes of the Southwest; the areas of these regimes are depicted in the inset map. In each set of curves, the 1901-1986 average (solid) is bounded by the seasonal maxima and mimina for the 86-year period (dashed). These smoothed curves are based only on the data points shown. Data from Karl et al., 1991.
