Temperature records for the past 56 years

The hottest temperature measured from 1964 to October 2020 was reported by the Majuro weather station. In October 2019, the record temperature of 38.5 ° C was reported here. The hottest summer from July to September, based on all 2 weather stations on the Marshall Islands below 10 meters above sea level, was recorded in 2016 with an average of 29.0 ° C. This average temperature is usually recorded every 4 to 6 hours, including the nights. Normally this value is 27.8 degrees Celsius. The average maximum daily temperature at that time was 30.9 ° C.

The Majuro weather station reported the coldest day in these 56 years. Here the temperature dropped to 20.4 ° C in November 2009. Majuro lies at a height of 3 meters above sea level. The coldest winter (January to March) was in 1976 with an average of 26.4 ° C. It is common on the Marshall Islands to have about 1.2 degrees more at 27.6 ° C for this three-month period.


Long-term development of temperatures from 1997 to 2019

In contrast to individual record values, a long-term development cannot simply be brought about over all weather stations in the country. Both the number and the locations are constantly changing. A simply calculated average value would produce a falsified result. If several measuring stations are added in a year in particularly cold mountain or coastal regions, this alone would reduce the average. If a station fails over the summer or winter months, it does not provide any values ​​and falsifies the average again. The subsequent long-term development was therefore reduced to only 1 measuring point in order to actually have comparable data over the longest possible period.

In the years 1997 to 2019 there were only these 1 weather stations in the whole country, which continuously reported temperature values ​​(Majuro). From these weather reports we have created a long-term development that shows the monthly average temperatures. The hottest month in this entire period was 2016 with 29.1 ° C. 1997 was the coldest month with an average of 27.3 ° C.

The annual average temperature in the years after 1997 was around 27.9 ° C and in the last years before 2019 it was around 28.4 ° C. So it has increased moderately by around 0.5 ° C in the past 23 years. However, this tendency only applies to the selected 1 weather stations on the Marshall Islands. We have provided a considerably more extensive evaluation of the global temperature rise separately.
