1986 Climatological Report
2,
L. Schwandes

This report summarizes weather data for 1986 at the Everglades Research and
Education Center, Belle Glade, Palm Beach County, Florida; Lat. 26040';
Long. 800 38'; R-37-E T-44-S; Elevation 11.5 ft.m.s.l.

Temperature: 1986 was a hot year with ten months above average. November
was the hottest November on record being 6.1 above normal.

Freezing temperatures occurred in January and March. Temperatures
were:

Jan. 15 320 (.5 hours at 32)
Jan. 28 260 ( 5 hours below 32)
Jan. 29 27 (10 hours below 32)
Mar. 2 290 ( 4 hours below 32)
Mar. 3 320 (.5 hours at 32)

In this years's report we have compiled freeze data for the last 61 years.
We also have included hours below 32 for freezes back the last ten years.
The two pages on these subject are found toward the back of this publication.

Rain Fall: Total rainfall for 1986 was 49.84 inches. This was 6.66 inches
below normal. There was below average rainfall in seven months. April through
September there was below average rainfall every month.

Solar Radiation: Solar radiation averaged 411 Langleys per month, just 6
Langleys above the 15 year average. Solar radiation was above
average in nine months.

Solar Thermal Units: These units are based on a minimum growing temperature
of 60"F. The formula is....

STU= (solar radiation) (mean daily temp. 600F.)
Solar radiation is expressed in Langleys.

For 1986 six months had solar thermal units above the 15 year
average. The total for the year was above the 15 year average.









All observations, except solar radiation which is recorded from a recorder
strip chart, are made at 8a.m. each morning and cover the previous 24 hours
period (16 hours of the previous day and 8 hours of the current day). However,
to assist local agricultural interest in comparing this weather data to their
observations of plant growth and product quality, the daily data represented in
this report on a Calendar Day basis. An explanation.of the various columns
follows:

Air Temperature Recorded in standard shelters at 3 inches and 5 feet
above ground.
Ground minimum A.M., recorded only during winter months.
Minimum A.M., usually occurs in the early morning hours.
Maximum P.M., usually occurs in the afternoon.
Mean Average on Min. & Max., approximates average for the day.

Solar Radiatio -- Sunshine energy reported as langleys (gram calories
per cm Measured by solar pyranometer and calculated from a
recorder strip chart.

Rainfall Inches of rainfall measured at 8 AM is credited to the previous
day even though some may have fallen after midnight..

Evaporation Loss of water from a standard evaporation pan. Measurements
at 8 AM is credited to previous day since most evaporation occurs
during sunshine hours when temperature is high and humidity is low.

Wind Recorded on a strip chart. Count at AM is credited to previous day.
At 2 ft.- miles of travel at 6 to 8 inches above the evaporation pan.
At 20 ft. miles of travel and direction of travel at top of 20 foot
tower.

Soil Temperature AM minimum and PM maximum occurring 4 inches below the
surface of bare soil.

Relative Humidity Hours over 90% continuous, ending on calendar day.
Usually starts in late PM of previous day.
Minimum % Usually occurs in afternoon when temperature and radiation
are highest.

Wetness Continuous hours, ending during calendar day, that moisture from
rain or dew stays on foliage. May start in late PM of previous day.

Weather Report 1986


Frost Information:.

It was decided to review the frost data from 1925 to 1985. We found that
there were 119 freezes in 61 years giving a rate of 2 freezes/year. The number
of freezes pqr year ranged from eight (1 year) to zero (17 years). The earliest
frost occurreddon the last.week of November in 1956. The latest frost occurred
on the third week in March 1926.
We also looked back over our records to find the hours of frost. This is
the number of minutes or hours below 32 F. We found that the time ranged
from 30 minutes to 13 hours.. On Dec. 27, 1985 the over-night low was 29F
but we still had.11 hours of frost. So we can not predict hours of frost just
from the over-night minimum.
Another point of interest is that we measure our temperatures at 5 feet
above the ground. Ground level temperatures are 2 to 30 below the
observed temperatures. So if we report an over-night low temperature of
33 F, there will be areas of frost.
