I thought about this, but to be most useful for simply seeing what the temperature is like outside, Heat Index and Wind Chill are more appropriate (which was partly why I originally wrote it). It would be different if you were to use it for meteorilogical analysis.

In version 2.0 of the script, I plan to specifically show dewpoint and/or relative humidity (as well as some other data), but I haven't decided yet how to present it. Possibly (but not necessarily) on another graph.

I'd also like to include daily high/low and possibly even forecast/actual comparisons.

Dewpoint would be better than wind/heat index
As a meteorologist, the better thing to do would be to plot dewpoint temperature rather than the heat/windchill. I would make heat/windchill a seperate graph or just have it as a listed item along with the high low....something like current stress index = ###

Otherwise, I find this to be a very useful program. Great job.
