A New Normal For Temperature

New normal for what the temperature changed because NOAA updated the temperature average that meteorologist use. The baseline for normal weather from 1981-2010 was 52.8 degrees Fahrenheit. The new baseline from 1991-2020 is 53.3 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a 1.5-degree Fahrenheit increase. While this may not appear to be big jump, it is easy to get accustomed to shifts in temperature.  How does this impact extreme weather events or rising electricity costs? How can we compare new relative positions?
