Our recent New Year's Eve snowstorm made driving home difficult Sunday night. The first day of 2007 brought bright sunshine and the pavement surface responded nicely as shown in the plot. While air temperatures were barely above freezing, pavement temperatures reached 45 degrees helping to melt all of the snow and ice off.

Good = 16
Bad = 3
