It may also be radiating heat to the night sky, its effective temperature is cooler than outdoor drybulb.
We want to investigate exactly this lagging and especially the time needed to reach the ODT (probably several weeks). The question is why it doesn't reach the ODT while holding it constant, but arrives asymptotically on a much lower temperature, without any cooling.
