*Cooling degree days are calculated by comparing the day’s average temperature to a 65 degree baseline. If the day’s average temperature is below 65, there are no cooling degree days that day. If the average temperature is greater than 65 degrees, then subtract 65 from the average temperature to find the number of cooling degree days.
