Visualize climate change for your city.

It is normal for weather conditions to be quite different from year to year - some years are hotter, some are colder; some are wetter, some are drier. However, for many places on earth, strong trends can be observed. In many cases, the trend is for temperatures to be higher on average. The graphics below are designed to give you an idea of how the climate has changed to this date for the place where you live.

The data also incorporates climate projections up until 2050. Please keep in mind that such long-term projections are always subject to assumptions and therefore only represent our current best guess as to what might happen.

Weather data is provided by and is based on ERA5-reanalysis data, which itself comes from the amazing copernicus program.The long-term climate projections are also supplied by open-meteo and are based on data from CMIP6 and are released unter CC BY 4.0 license. The climate change icon is created by Freepik - Flaticon.

Please note that the underlying historical data is based on a ~11km grid model. Usually, this makes no difference as climate conditions don't often change that much within such small distances. However, in extreme situations, the data displayed can be misleading, especially when looking at places in small valleys. For example, looking at the data for Quito, Ecuador actually displays data for the surrounding mountains because that's just where the grid points fall, leading to suprising numbers – the climate in the mountains obviously is very different from the climate in the valley below.

Furthermore, all climate projections are inherently unsecure as they are based on assumptions. Please consider the projected values with caution.
