Long-term development of temperatures from 1953 - 1978

In the years 1953 to 1978 there were only 3 weather stations in the whole country, which reported continuous temperature values (N'djamena, Sarh, Moundou). From these weather reports we have created a long-term development that shows the monthly average temperatures. The hottest month in this entire period was April 1954 with 32.3 °C. Dezember 1961 was the coldest month with an average temperature of 22.8 °C.

The average annual temperature was about 27.6 °C in the years after 1953 and about 27.0 °C in the last years before 1978. So it has dropped by about 0.6 °C. This trend only applies to the selected 3 weather stations in Chad. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of the global warming has been provided separately.
