Monthly weather data

It is desirable to compare the YSGH operation temperature data to the external temperature data. Since there is not a mini-weather-station at the YSGH, the daily high and low temperature data taken at the Blacksburg VA National Weather Service Office are used for comparison. The distance between the weather station and the YSGH is about four miles.

Air temperature and humidity at the heat-sink input pipe

Blacksburg VA temperatures, Wind & Sunshine

The black curve is the temperature at the input heat-sink pipe in RSGH; the other curves are temperatures at the Blacksburg weather station.

The units for wind & sunshine are arbitrary. Sunshine really means cloud cover in tenths of the sky.
