Spatial and temporal near-surface air temperature variabilities and trends were analyzed for 30 locations in Illinois based on annual data derived from station records and the North American Regional Reanalysis (NARR) dataset from 1979 to 2006. A high correlation was found between the two datasets for interannual variability at most locations. Temperatures were generally higher at urban stations than non-urban stations, while non-urban NARR data points showed higher temperatures than urban data points. Significant positive temperature trends were found in the majority of the weather stations and in all NARR data points, with generally stronger trends in the NARR data
