I wonder what the greatest swing in temperatures within a month would be for Ann Arbor. 65.5 degrees is pretty big.

Going back to 2010, when we got the weather station, four months had swings over 60 degrees. January 2013 had a high of 61.8 and low of -1.2. May of 2013 had a high of 89.2 and a low of 27.6. February of 2015 had a high of 43.8 and a low of -20.0. But the biggest swing came the next month, as March 2015 had a high of 64.7 and a low of -3.1 for a differance of 66.8 degrees.
