The chances for frost

Posted: 03 Oct 2008 06:37 AM

The featured chart shows the percentage of years since 1893 that a certain temperature threshold was exceeded by a certain date in the fall for the Ames climate site. For instance, the chance (observational frequency) of a sub-33 temperature by this time of year is roughly 50%. This means half of the years prior to this one have seen a sub-33 temperature by October 4th.

Good = 42
Bad = 24
