Last 60 days of hi/lo temps from Ames.
The featured plot shows observed high (red line) and low (blue line) temperatures for the Ames ISUAG site for the past 60 days. The recent uptick in low temperatures has been a result of an increase in humidity. The increased humidity makes it more difficult for the atmosphere to cool off at night. It also will help to fuel forecasted storms over the next few days.

Good = 11
Bad = 4
