Average Temperatures of Key Cities in 2019, Most Above Normal

AccuWeather examined the average temperatures of 3,500 cities in 2019, and The NY Times set up a search site for cities.  Of those cities, 83% were higher than normal in 2019. 2019 was the second warmest year on record, just behind 2016.  The normal average was that of 1981-2010.

Their is a large difference between land or city temperatures and the yearly average worldwide temperature, which is weighted over the world, where 70% is covered by oceans, which warm less than land.

We give a list below of some key cities, in an order chosen by me on a geopolitical bases.  We start with California, and then go onto the United States.  We then add North America, and then South America.  Finally, we scan the world,  We give the city name, the average temperature, and the excess above normal last year, in degrees Fahrenheit.
