January Days at 50+

Posted: 07 Jan 2019 05:31 AM

The weather on Saturday was spectacular with highs well into the 50s and made for the third day this January with temperatures above 50 for Des Moines. The featured chart presents the number of January days each year with the high at least 50 degrees. Of course, a good number of years fail to reach this level at all during the month, so getting three days so far is a treat. The overall average is around two days, so we are off to an exceptional start for 2019. We may be able to eek out 50 degrees today before cooling off for the rest of the week.

Good = 8
Bad = 0
