Plot Description:This chart plots the number of daily maximum high temperatures, minimum low temperatures and precipitation records set by year. Ties are not included. The algorithm sets the records based on the first year of data and then iterates over each sequential year and sets the new daily records. A general model of the number of new records to be set each year would be 365 / (number of years). So you would expect to set 365 records the first year, 183 the second, and so on...
