100 degree Days

Posted: 25 Jun 2012 05:41 AM

The hot weather is back with temperatures on Sunday into the lower 90s over southern Iowa and expected to warm to near 100 degrees this week. The featured chart presents the occurrences of 100 degree weather. July is certainly the favored month of the year, but having this warm of weather in late June is common as well. The bottom chart presents the number of days per year that at least one site in Iowa reported a 100 degree high temperature. The Dust Bowl era and the drought of 1988 stand out in this plot.

Good = 35
Bad = 9
