A long time series may be better visualized using dynamic animation. This Demonstration shows the consecutive daily maximum temperature in °C from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2005 (2192 values) for a weather station near London, Ontario. The simple fitted harmonic regression with period 365.25 is also shown.
