Plot Description:

This plot presents the largest drop in low temperature during a fall season. The drop compares the lowest low previous to the date with the low for that date. For example, if your coldest low to date was 40, you would not expect to see a low temperature of 20 the next night without first setting colder daily low temperatures. See also this autoplot for more details.
