Project Description

Cumulative Chilling Hours Model

Traditional chilling hour accumulations are provided from November 1 through February 28/29 - the usual dormant season for California's tree fruit and nut crops. Hourly temperatures are downloaded nightly for more than 200 CIMIS weather stations.


Cumulative Chilling Portions Model

The Chilling Portions model uses a much more advanced model to calculate Chilling Portions. This uses different units than Chilling hours.

Chilling Portion accumulations are provided from September 1 through August 31.
