Are you wondering how this year’s temperatures and moisture are comparing to previous years? Temperatures can easily be compared by using a measure called degree-days. This is a unit used by designers of heating and cooling systems. Each heating day’s degree-day value is found by averaging the daily high and low and subtracting the result from a fixed number, usually 65. For example, if the high temperature for the day was 58 ºF and the low was 30 ºF, the average would be 44. This subtracted from 65 would give 21 degree-days. The degree-days for the day would be 21 degree-days. The greater the degree-day value, the colder the day is. Adding the degree-days for the entire month is a way to then compare one month to another.

Below, is shown the monthly heating degree-day, rain, and snow totals for 2018 and 2019 to date and the averages for the past 15 years. Using the degree-day numbers, one can easily compare the “coldness” of one month to last year and the average from the past 15 years. The numbers below apply to the SE corner of the ranch.
