We do not have specific information on weather norms for
falls within the
metropolitan area, so this is the information that is being provided.
The following chart illustrates historical weather temperatures that are typical for the month.
The two charts below show information relevant to precipitation. The first chart
is the typical precipitation for the month indicated. The second chart shows the
precentage of the month in question that is subject to inclement weather (rain, snow,
etc.). Combined the two charts give the viewer a better understanding of precipitation
in the area. For example, if the first chart shows a relatively small amount of
rain accumulations in June, but the second chart shows a large percentage of June
to be inclement --- the reader can interpret the information to mean that the small
amount of rain is spread out over the month as oppose to falling within a short
period of time.
Cooling/Heating Degree Days
The two charts below show the cooling and heating degree days for the area. Cooling
degree days is a cummulative of the degrees that are above 78°(F). Heating degrees
is the cummulative of degrees that fall below 65°. This information becomes
important when trying to understand the amount of energy necessary to heat or cool
a home. It is best to use these charts when comparing different regions of the
country in order to compare potential energy needs for heating and cooling.
The chart below illustrates typical wind speeds for an area.
