Winter Frozen Days

Posted: 04 Mar 2016 05:11 AM

Temperatures were a bit chilly on Thursday with highs only in the 30s for much of the state and only extreme southwestern Iowa enjoyed the 40s. The featured chart displays the number of days each winter season (December thru February) that the high temperature was below 32 degrees (a frozen day). The total this year for Ames continues the recent trend of below long term average seasonal totals. The current forecast is optimistic for a warm up next week with highs in the 50s and even higher.

Good = 39
Bad = 23
Abstain = 25
