Notable Trends in Atlantic hurricanes
Hurricane Detection Trends and Corrected Records.
The percentage of hurricanes that move near land should be flat. Use that fact to adjust the counts of past hurricanes and ACE for the year to account for missing detection.
Hurricane Category Percentages
The percentage of hurricanes in various categories should be flat except for natural variations, global warming effects, and changes in detection methods.
Temperature Plots.
I try to use the longest possible records at single stations without the need for splicing or homogenization. Splicing is as bad as homogenization since you really can't tell whether the trends are accurate without using some other metadata, e.g. urbanization metadata. But if you have urbanization metadata, why not just toss the stations that are urbanizing?

There are ways to avoid the need for homogenization (discontinuity detection). Use extreme highs, i.e. don't calculate averages or count the number of days since that can be biased by observation time discontinuities (code: These are plots of the highest summer month temperatures with trends in degrees F per year. All plots on one page including the increases in winter month low temps.

Dry Season. Similar to temperature I try to use the longest continuous stations for rainall plots. The data shows a general increase in the length of the dry season although in some locations the dry season is shorter and others it has shifted.

Rainfall Trends. Trying to show trends in light to heavy rainfalls is complicated by the fact that rainfall can be timed overnight from one day to the next and show up as two days of lighter rainfall. I double count to catch those, but that introduces some trend artifacts in some cases. I also plot weekly rainfall trends and note the uptick in two-inch weeks around the DC area.
