Temperature variation in uncontrolled environments is driven by diurnal cycling (rise and fall of the sun). As such, the statistics of temperatures in uncontrolled environments can be determined through an assessment of climatic data and an understanding of temperature rise within an enclosed structure. There were two sources of climatic data used in this assessment: National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) and CONFIDENTIAL North American Ambient Weather Study (1988). The NCDC provided two databases from which to provide some understanding of the probability of any one temperature occurring over long periods of time in the United States.
