Does the temperature profile follow a normalized curve?

You decide.

This is for the 29 stations for all across Canada. I took each station's baseline and subtracted the TMax for every day to get anomalies. I then created a matrix of how many days are at each interger deviation from the baseline per year. Years as columns, deviation degrees as rows and the intersection the number of days. I then did a percent calculation for each cell. That is, the percent of days for each year for each degree deviation (cleans up years with fewer days due to missing data). I then created a bell graph for each year and made this animation. Keep in mind that the area under the bars adds up to 100% for every year.
