3 Month Average Temperature Outlook For Philadelphia

Probability of Exceedance Curve

Red line is the 3 month average temperature between 1981 and 2010. The latest 3 month period is shown above. Green line is expected temperature outlook as a percentage vs temperature. For example, there is a middle point of the green curve at 76 degrees, this equates to a 50% chance of exceeding that as an average temperature for the tri-monthly period of JJA. At the bottom edge of the curve, there is almost a 0 percent chance of exceeding an 80 degree average for the tri-monthly period. Generally, we are most likely to have an average temperature between 75 and 77 degrees. That includes daytime and night time temps.
