Create a Weather Graph!

 
Create a graph showing how weather data changes daily. Look for patterns in your graph. Notice that it is usually more windy just before the weather changes. Notice how the temperature stays colder during the winter months and warmer in the summer. Can you see any other patterns over a period of time?
 
Use the Internet to find the data you need (you might visit KSL on-line for your information), and make a bar graph like the ones below:
