Plot Description:

This table presents the 10 largest or smallest differences between the lowest and highest air temperature for a local calendar day. Some stations have auxillary products that provide 'daily' values over a date defined always in standard time. This plot also presents sprites of the temperature time series starting at 12 hours before the denoted date and ending at 12 hours after the date. The sprite often quickly points out bad data points, sigh, but also easily shows if the temperature change was an increase during the day or decrease.

Autoplot 169 is similar to this plot, but computes the change over arbitrary time windows.

Based on a sampling of recent timings for this application, plot generation time has averaged 3 seconds. Hold on for the plot is generating now!
