Colder than Nome

Posted: 30 Jan 2014 05:43 AM

The same large scale weather pattern that has kept the east coast stormy, the Upper Midwest cold, and the west coast dry, has kept Alaska warm this January. The featured chart compares the daily high temperatures for Waterloo against Nome, Alaska. For the month, the climatological high temperature is about 16 degrees warmer for Waterloo. This year has been a different story with Nome having a temperature 20+ degrees warmer on seven days so far this month. Before you consider moving to Alaska for warmth, this pattern will eventually shift with seasonal temperatures returning to both locations!

Good = 21
Bad = 6
Abstain = 2
