This plot presents the daily climatology range of a sounding variable along with a given year's values.

The Storm Prediction Center website has a very similiar tool that you may want to check out.

If you select to plot both 00 and 12 UTC, the climatology is computed seperately at 00 and 12 UTC. The chart gets more noisey when doing so.
