Abstract. We use the discrete "wavelet transform microscope" to study the monofractal nature of surface air temperature signals of weather stations spread across Europe. This method reveals that the information obtained in this way is richer than previous works studying long range correlations in meteorological stations: the approach presented here allows to bind the Hölder exponents with the standard deviation of surface pressure anomalies, while such a link does not appear with methods previously carried out.
