Only a few swings this year

you can find this data under the "climodat" reports
The featured chart displays the IEM computed number of temperature swings during the springtime season between 26 and 38 degrees. The algorithm counts the number of times the temperature exceeded 38 degrees and then was cooler than 26 degrees. You might consider these as freeze and thaw cycles. Anyway, for 2010 we have seen very few of these temperature swings (just 5 in fact) while the long term average value is around 17. We have warmed up and have not looked back!

Good = 33
Bad = 30
