FEATURED DATA ARCHIVE
07 June 20010
The plot here shows the percent of observations in which a cloud was detected each day for all NH seasons observed thus far, including the current season (for which the last day is 5 June, or DFS -14). Note that there are “false” detections prior to DFS -24 that must be considered in interpreting the data. So for the current season, our first cloud detection occurred on May 28.
