Abstract

Extreme maxima exhibit a zonal pattern, modified somewhat by terrain features in the west. Extreme minima are more dramatically skewed from a zonal orientation, because of the effects of elevation and proximity to oceans. Interannual variability in the record of extreme temperatures appears to be dictated by proximity to air-mass source regions. Strong, spatially coherent patterns of correlation between statewide extremes and amplitude of midtropopsheric flow are evident in the east
