Data
Coastal
Plain 


All
Years Temperature Correlation: 0.06 This
is a low correlation so it shows almost no similarity between seasonal
temperatures. 

ENSO
Years Temperature Correlation: 0.56 This
is one of the higher correlations between seasons, so in ENSO years the
correlation is clearly much better. 
All
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.23 Compared
to other allyears correlations, this is not too low. It shows that there was some correlation
between the seasons. 

ENSO
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.18 This
is a very low correlation for ENSO year precipitation. 

Outer
Banks 


All
Years Temperature Correlation: 0.19 This
is not a high correlation but is the highest correlation among all regions
for 50year temperature data. 

ENSO
Years Temperature Correlation: 0.79 This
is a large correlation for ENSO years and it's the largest overall so a very
good correlation happened between winter and spring. 
All
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.09 This
is a very small number and the smallest correlation among all regions. 

ENSO
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.32 This
is an okay correlation, and during ENSO years it is the best precipitation
correlation. 

Piedmont 


All Years Temperature Correlation: 0.08 This is one of the lowest correlations for all years
temperatures so it shows very little similarity between winter and spring
temperatures. 

ENSO Years Temperature Correlation: 0.34 This is a better correlation than the all years data for the
Piedmont, but this is still one of the lowest correlations for ENSO years
temperatures. 
All
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.14 There
is some very slight correlation but not a lot. Some years varied a lot. 

ENSO
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.07 The
correlation for ENSO years precipitation in the Piedmont actually decreased
from the all years data! 

Sandhills 


All Years Temperature Correlation: 0.14 This is a very low correlation for the Sandhills, and it shows
that the temperature trends were very different between seasons. 

ENSO Years Temperature Correlation: 0.54 This is a very high correlation, this number shows that the
temperature in the Sandhills trended the same way in most strong ENSO years. 
All Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.21 This is an okay correlation but is still fairly low. 

ENSO Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.28 This correlation is a low correlation but it shows the
precipitation in ENSO year winters and springs still correlated some. 

Northern
Mountains 


All Years Temperature Correlation: 0.01 This is a very low correlation, in fact, there is almost no
correlation at all. 

ENSO Years Temperature Correlation: 0.24 This low correlation shows that the temperature trends in this
region were very different. 
All
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.21 This
is a low correlation, so the precipitation varied a lot seasonally in this
part of the mountains. 

ENSO
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.24 This
is a low correlation. The amount of precipitation varied from season to
season. 

Southern
Mountains 


All Years Temperature Correlation: 0.06 This is a very low correlation, so any correlation is almost
nonexistent. 

ENSO Years Temperature Correlation: 0.47 This is an okay correlation. The temperature varied sometimes
but mostly trended the same way in ENSO years. 
All
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.22 This
is a fairly low correlation, even for all years of data. 

ENSO
Years Precipitation Correlation: 0.27 This
is an okay correlation but is still fairly low for ENSO years.
