Recovery is more likely

Posted: 13 Sep 2007 07:07 AM

After a cold start on Wednesday, temperatures warmed 30+ degrees to comfortable afternoon values. The featured plot graphs the daily average temperature range, which can be thought of as the amount of warming that occurs. You can see that September and October experience the largest temperature swings, so cold mornings are more often recovered into nice afternoons. The reason for this is the decreasing humidity levels allowing more efficient warming and ground temperatures which are still very warm.

Good = 23
Bad = 3
