As promised in another thread, I am giving some detail and screen shots on my most recent climate project, including screenshots. This is based on 30 years worth of temperature input. (My next project is going to include precipitation amounts. I have to update my spreadsheet to make allow for it to keep records and averages).

I will start with screenshots. First, monthly averages and records in table format:



And now in graph format:







------------------------

And now, daily averages and records by month:

















-----------------------------

And now for some more in depth information:

Out of 30 years, the total number of year which:

Recorded at least one day of 105 F or higher: 4 years
Recorded at least one day of 100 F or higher: 8 years
Recorded at least one day of 95 F or higher: 25 years
Recorded at least one day of 90 F or higher: 30 years

Recorded at least one night of 10 F or lower: 30 years
Recorded at least one night of 5 F or lower: 29 years
Recorded at least one night of 0 F or lower: 21 years
Recorded at least one night of -5 F or lower: 17 years
Recorded at least one night of -10 F or lower: 9 years
Recorded at least one night of -15 F or lower: 6 years
Recorded at least one night of -20 F or lower: 2 years

Recorded at least one low temperature of 70 F or higher: 5 years
Recorded at least one low temperature of 65 F or higher: 12 years
Recorded at least one low temperature of 60 F or higher: 26 years
Recorded at least one low temperature of 55 F or higher: 30 years

Recorded at least one high temperature of 25 F or lower: 30 years
Recorded at least one high temperature of 20 F or lower: 29 years
Recorded at least one high temperature of 15 F or lower: 25 years
Recorded at least one high temperature of 10 F or lower: 17 years
Recorded at least one high temperature of 5 F or lower: 15 years
Recorded at least one high temperature of 0 F or lower: 7 years
Recorded at least one high temperature of -5 F or lower: 4 years
Recorded at least one high temperature of -10 F or lower: 1 year

---------------------------------------

About the daily average and record screen shots above, I keep trying to realign the sections that tell you what you're looking at to match up better but it won't stay. Also not sure why they won't show up any bigger than that, I'm sorry it's difficult to read!

Anyway as I mentioned earlier my next project will include precipitation, I just have to update my spreadsheet database to include it. My current database uses 5 different spreadsheets to keep all the records (only some of my database is shown here), so I'll have to create more and have it programmed to accommodate for the precipitation.

So, how would we rate this?

Even without the precip data, it looks like a Dfb or Dsb climate. Definitely a solid A. Looks like here but with cooler lows that are more pronounced during the summer.

Very nice temps overall, though I'm not a fan of dry summers, so it's a B-.
