80s for the fair

Posted: 23 Aug 2017 05:36 AM

The Iowa State Fair came to a close on Sunday and set an attendance record at over 1,130,000 people. The weather certainly cooperated for much of the fair. The featured chart displays the percentage of hours for each year's fair that the temperature was at or above 80 degrees between 7 am and 10 pm. This year's total came in at just about average, but quite lower than 2016. These values are based on hourly reports from the Des Moines Airport. 2004 shows up as the least number of hours and 1983 as the most for this chart.

Good = 10
Bad = 0
