A method for calculating warm cold temperature extremes during the warmest coldest month of the year was developed. Regression analyses were performed for warm cold temperature versus an index calculated from a stations monthly mean temperature and mean daily range. Correlation for these regression lines ranges from 0.974 to 0.995. Warm and cold indices, calculated for approximately 2000 Northern Hemisphere stations, were plotted and analyzed. The resulting Northern Hemisphere maps of the 1-, 5-, and 10-percent warm temperatures, and the 1-, 5-, 10-, and 20-percent cold temperatures for the warmest coldest month are presented.
