Seven Days of 60+

Posted: 12 Mar 2015 05:39 AM

If the current forecast holds, Des Moines would have a streak of seven consecutive days with a high temperature at or above (AOA) 60 degrees. The featured chart presents the frequency of such a streak partitioned by week of the year. For the middle of March, such a streak is a very rare occurrence. Of course, this happens almost every day of during summer. 60 degrees in March does feel a lot warmer than 60 degrees in July, so most Iowans are very happy with the current stretch of weather we are in.

Good = 21
Bad = 11
Abstain = 2
