I'm just an RRD beginner, but you could probably calculate and sum the
number of hours over a certain time with an RPN expression and then
graph that.

I don't know the syntax, but something like "temperature 24 > 1 0 if
sum" might do it. (equivalent to SUM(IF(temperature > 24,1,0)) in a
bracketed meta-language).

Cheers, Chris.
