In this work, the average mean (TAvg), maximum (TMax), and minimum
temperature (TMin) and precipitation records of Qingdao from 1899 to 2015
are analyzed. The TAvg, TMax and TMin all go through several warm and
cold periods, and exhibit statistically significant linear warming trend especially
in spring and winter, as a response to global warming. Besides, the
TAvg reflects more the TMin evolution for the most part, either as a trend or
an abrupt change, and the contribution of TMin to Tavg is far greater than
that of TMax. The abrupt change year of climate is also around 1979 in
Qingdao, and it is 2 or 3-years later than the TAvg for the TMin, while there
is no abrupt change of TMax. In terms of the precipitation in Qingdao, it varies
periodically and dramatically with a slow increasing trend. As for the
seasonal precipitation, the precipitation varies widely year by year for the four
seasons but with no obvious variation trend except for spring.
