Sunny Weekend

Posted: 19 Sep 2016 05:38 AM

The featured chart displays daily solar radiation for the past eight days from the ISU Ag Farm station. The black line represents a clear sky theoretical maximum value for the day. You can see that this line is sloping downwards as the ever shortening day and lowering soil angle yield lower energy totals each day. We did see plenty of sunshine for the past weekend and the two values shown are close to the clear sky computed maximum. This week looks to be a mixture of sunshine and storms with mild temperatures.

Good = 9
Bad = 0
