One of my favorite things in the print version of the Times is this way of presenting temperature forecasts for the coming days. I suppose I understand why it's not considered worth showing in the eternal present of the online version - in real time, it's a matter of indifference what the record or even average temperatures for that day are, not to mention the performance of past days. (Unless your way of living in time is all about projecting pasts into futures... or, less ambitiously and authentically, futures into pasts.) But you've got to admit, it is a great way of presenting a lot of information economically, and even elegantly.
