Average Daily Minimum Temperature 

A day’s lowest (minimum) temperature usually occurs in the early morning. Averaging the daily low temperatures for any period results in a mean minimum temperature for that period.

Periods of low temperature give plants, animals, and people a chance to recover from the daytime heat. When minimum temperatures aren’t sufficiently cool, plant and animal responses can trigger ecosystem changes and increased demand for energy can stress energy infrastructure.
