Comparing Arridities

Posted: 10 Aug 2016 05:29 AM

Continuing with the recent theme of featuring IEM Arridity plots, today's featured chart compares fourteen trailing day arridities for statewide averaged temperature and precipitation during the 1 May to 8 August period. This year is shown, along with last year and 2012 (drought year). The plot also dynamically includes the closest match to this year's data based on least RMSE , which is 1978. This year has seen much more stress than last year, but pales in comparison to 2012. You can generate this plot for other locations and periods of your choice.

Good = 8
Bad = 1
Abstain = 1
