How to Read the Plots:
This is an example of the monthly climate plot. The
observed high and low temperatures are indicated by the
tops and bottoms of the vertical blue bars,
respectively. The normal temperature ranges are
indicated by the green band. Record highs are shown on
the top of the light pink band, and record lows are
indicated along the bottom of the light blue band.
This is an example of the year to date climate plot. As
with the monthly plot, observed temperatures are shown
by the dark blue areas, normals with the light green
areas, record highs in the light red areas, and record
lows in the light blue areas. The bottom portion of the
graph indicates the precipitation for the year to date.
The yellow line (and green area below it) represents the
normal year to date total at the given time frame.
Periods that have year to date totals above the
climatological normals are shown by dark green areas
above the yellow line. Periods that are below normal are
shown with the brown areas below the yellow line.
