Weather: 10 years, 30 years, 50 years, 70 years… how have temperatures changed in Rodez?

How have temperatures changed in Rodez over the past 10, 30, 50 or even 70 years? And what scenarios can be expected for the future? A tool allows you to find out.

When discussing the subject of global warming, one question comes up regularly: how have temperatures changed in time? It is possible to know, and in particular on the Rodez side.

Since… your birth!

In fact, it is a tool published by Ouest-France which allows you to simply know the evolution of temperatures in the town of your choice and this since… your birth! The user can go back until 1951 for an exact year, and thus have statistics over 70 years, the device stopping in 2022.

Very precisely Salles-Curan

As the tool indicates, the data collected for Rodez corresponds to that of the nearest weather station, namely Salles-Curan.

10 years, 15 years, 20 years…

Latest figure: 2022. The average temperature recorded was of 11.7°C. How much was it for the first figure recorded, namely 1951? Answer: 8,1°C ! In 70 years, the average temperature has therefore increased of 3.6°C around Rodez.

As our colleagues report, “with the help of Météo France”, a weighted figure “taking into account the average temperature over ten years” is proposed. And the difference is slighter: over 70 years, the temperature has increased of 1.87°C. The lowest value was 6.7°C in 1956It was in 1997 that she crossed the 10°C mark for the first time (10.3°C).

Here are the figures recorded, decade by decade:

  • 1951 : 8,1°C
  • 1961 : 9,4°C
  • 1971 : 8,3°C
  • 1981 : 8,5°C
  • 1991 : 8,6°C
  • 2001 : 9,1°C
  • 2011 : 10,4°C
  • 2021 : 9,5°C
  • 2022 : 11,7°C

And then ?

The reference temperature for the Salles-Curan weather station is 8.6°CThe tool allows you to know how it will evolve for the next annual averages.

The increase recorded in recent decades should therefore continue: +3.72°C in 2034, +4.27°C in 2044and up to +6.16°C in 2084still in relation to the same figure of 8.6°C.
