This "degree days" table is probably the most "at a glance" summary of a month, and a year to date i've seen. I can instantly look at 2011 April with 80 and reignite fond memories of a couple of weeks of scorching clear blue skies. Then look at 2012 Aprils score of 2 and recollect the grey rubbish! It also perfectly highlights the week spell of decent weather in March 2012 vs nothing in 2011.otorongo wrote:Sure. Data for Manchester:cordyman wrote:Can you run the same stats for Manchester?

I'll leave the comments to you, Cordyman
If anyone else wants to get the stats for their location:
1. Go to the Wunderground page for your city, e.g. http://www.wunderground.com/global/stations/03772.html for London
2. Click under "Weather Station", which will take you to the historical data page, e.g. for London that will be http://www.wunderground.com/history/air ... story.html
3. If that page has a "Degree Days" section you're good, if not you can't get the GDDs.
4. Click on the "Monthly" tab
5. "Growing Degree Days (base 50)"/"sum" is the value to look at for the currently selected month.
6. Select another month/year from the dropdowns (ignore the day) or use the "Previous Month" and "Next Month" links.
Seems the best way to summarise an area and month year vs year at a very quick glance.
Funny as first time i've heard of this "degree days" table
