Daily Growing Degree Days

Posted: 07 May 2015 05:40 AM

The featured chart displays the daily climatology of growing degree days for Ames along with the actual values (dots) for this year. We have seen plenty of above average days this spring with each day so far this May above average. Our average daily accumulations this time of year are half of what we can expect during the warmest time of the year. Having warm over night low temperatures makes a big difference with the computation of this value.

Good = 16
Bad = 15
Abstain = 5
