Question

Daily weather observations for southwestern Pennsylvania for the first three weeks of January show daily high temperatures as follows: 55, 44, 51, 59, 62, 60, 46, 51, 37, 30, 46, 51, 53, 57, 57, 39, 28, 37, 35, and 28 degrees Fahrenheit. The normal standard deviation in high temperatures for this time period is usually no more than 8 degrees. A meteorologist believes that with the unusual trend in temperatures the standard deviation is greater. At α = 0.05, can we conclude that the standard deviation is greater than 8 degrees?
