A site that reports current chill hours for specific locations

nguyena1(8b)February 5, 2013

Does anyone know of a website that lists the current chill hours for different weather station locations? I'm trying to find the current chill hours for 2013 winter for Austin.

Something like Overton's A&M agriculture extension site would be perfect

I tried looking for a list of all A&M extension sites to see if they have one for Austin.

This one, the blogger blogs that on Jan 29th, Fredericksburg currently has 550 chill. Where is he getting his info from!

FYI this is a pretty nice pdf that shows the trend of the chill hours for the past 20 years.

I've tried looking at wunderground and they have graphs for the temperature for every hour but I don't want to manually go thorugh each day and calculate this my self :)

You might call the Natural Gardener. They have had that info posted when they sold their fruit trees last year so they possibly have access to that info this year.. I saw fruit trees out on the grounds in their spring fruit tree blits when I was there day before yesterday. I didn't walk down to the area and read it this year but last year, I was amazed how different places were in the amount of average chill hours around town. I don't think we had hardly any chill hours this year.
