Temperature and precipitation climatic normals over Italy

Climatic normals are the mean or characteristic values of a climate variable in a long time interval. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) established that the length of the reference period should be 30 years.  By applying the WMO data requirements and criteria,  temperature (mean, minimum and e maximum) and precipitation normals over Italy were calculated, using meteorological time series available through the Sistema nazionale per la raccolta, l’elaborazione e la diffusione di dati Climatologici di Interesse Ambientale (SCIA). Monthly and yearly normals in different thirty-years climatological periods are presented in the form of tables and maps obtained through geostatistical algorithms.
