The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) has officially released new climate normals for hundreds of cities around the United States. This new dataset covers the period 1991-2020 and updates the previous version which used the period 1981-2010.

US National Weather Service Wilmington NC put together a webpage for Wilmington, Florence, North Myrtle Beach, and Lumberton where you can view the new annual, monthly, and daily normals and compare changes versus the old normals:

Across our portion of the Carolinas the largest change has been an increase in temperature. Low temps have increased at a faster rate than high temps. The upward trend in temperature exists at all stations and in all months with the exception of November where temperature has actually declined slightly. This is all great information to help make sure you are aware of hazards that might influence weather so you can prepare and be #ReadyNHC .
