Average Last 70

Posted: 03 Nov 2015 05:35 AM

Temperatures soared again on Monday well into the 70s for much of the state. The featured chart looks at the combination of last date of 70+ degree temperatures for Des Moines and the number of events for the year. The average last 70 degree day is right about now, so having this warm of weather this late into the fall is not exceptional. What is exception is the remarkable stretch of consecutive days above 70, which will likely continue till Thursday.

Good = 10
Bad = 6
Abstain = 7
