The warming index is a scale from 1-10, with each number assigned a corresponding difference in temperature between the year to date temperature average and historic temperature norm (30 year average 1950-1980).

The Temperature differentials represented by the index numbers are associated with impacts on the physical world as documented by the IPCC 2013 summary report, and the US National Climate Assessment from 2014.
