Fall Highs Above Average

Posted: 04 Dec 2017 05:32 AM

The fall season encompassing the full months of Sep, Oct, and Nov wrapped up last week. The featured chart looks at the percentage of days for the period that had a high temperature above average. The overall average is plotted as well and is slightly different than an even 50% due to asymmetries of the high temperature distribution. Anyway, years above this value are shown in red and below in blue. This fall was near 50% whereas the previous two where much higher for Ames. It has been about 20 years since the last fall season with substantially lower than 50% of the days above average for the fall season.

Good = 6
Bad = 2
