For each city, discuss the trend that you see in high and low temperatures. For example, do the high temperatures gradually increase, decrease, or show no pattern over the last 50 years? Suggest a reason for this change. Is there a relationship between the high and low temperatures and the rainfall over the last 50 years? Please answer yes or no and explain your answer. For example, if there is a relationship between temperature and rainfall, suggest a reason why this might have occurred. Has there been a change in the type of precipitation in your cities over that last 50 years? For example, did it snow every year for the last 40 years, and now the amount of snow in winter has decreased while the amount of rain has increased? Please answer yes or no and explain your answer. For example, if the type of precipitation has changed over the past 50 years, please suggest a reason. Pick one data point and determine if the data are significant for each of the three cities. Your data may be significant for one city, but not for the other cities. Discuss why you think the data are significant or not significant for each city.
