Still featuring July

Posted: 10 Aug 2011 10:20 PM

It is hard not to keep featuring interesting stats from July after such an exceptional month! The featured chart displays the July high and low temperature departures from long term average for Des Moines. The bottom plot displays the monthly high versus low departure with a good correlation of 0.6 shown, which means warm highs usually mean warm lows and vice versa. The red dot on the scatter plot shows how exceptional this year was for low temperature.

Good = 10
Bad = 6
