Meteorology Lab to Accompany Chapter 3 You will be doing internet searches for climographs for this lab. We will then focus on temperature data contained within the climographs. As an example of a climograph, suppose you do an internet search for “Minneapolis climograph.” You should find some images popping up of climographs, and one such image (I tried to choose a high- quality climograph) I copied and pasted here: If you pay attention to the red curve on the graph, you can learn something about the mean monthly temperatures for Minneapolis. The green bar graph portion of the above image deals with precipitation, which we don’t care about right now. As an example, if you look at July and find the red dot corresponding to July, the temperature reading for the red dot is about 72 degrees in Fahrenheit. This is the mean temperature for July. Now suppose you want to find the annual temperature range. You would find the warmest monthly mean temperature (July: 72 degrees) and subtract the coldest monthly mean temperature (January: 13 degrees): 72-13 = 59 degrees.
