The High Plains Normals Maps are composed of a series of maps with various climatic variables being represented. 1981-2010 Normals were used to comprise the atlas.

This atlas is not intended to be used solely for research or decision making, but as a quick reference to the climate of the entire High Plains region. Localized effects and topographical effects are not represented well by this atlas and should be analyzed more in areas known to have drastic climate changes due to elevation or land formations.
