Visualizing Jordan : 100 years of Temperature

I consider myself a winter person, in fact I just hate hot weather of August and I keep telling everyone that the weather has changed a lot during the past 15 years. So I decided to do my own study to see how Climate Change affects Temperature in Jordan. 
Luckily historical data are available through World Bank's Knowledge Portal [Link Here] , the Set provides Average Temperature & Average Rainfall for the years between 1901 - 2012, absolutely Awesome and that's exactly what am looking for ... Now, let's dig in!

August & January, obviously! but, let the data speaks for itself, here is a quick heat map by plotting values of Average Monthly Temperature in a "Months vs Years" plot where Red is Hot and Blue is Cold.
