Three regions, Huaibei, Jianghuai, Jiangnan, are divided based on the topography, climatic characteristics, as well as surface temperature from 1957 to 2006 of 16 stations in Anhui province. The change with the year, season and month is analyzed in Anhui province and three areas. Some conclusions are as follows. Anhui province had the lowest temperature in 1980s, but after that the temperature raised step by step. The warming fastest region is Jianghuai. The same pace of warming is in three areas: the greatest warming in spring, then that in autumn, the last in summer. It is warming remarkable in February and the cooling time occurs in July and December. But the fluctuation in three areas is different in some details. The heat island in Hefei is also researched. It suggests that the urban heat island intensity in 1990s in Hefei was the maximum, and then weakened. At the meanwhile, the summer is cooling and the winter is warming in Hefei.
