Finally Breaking the Streak

Posted: 13 Mar 2019 05:34 AM

Finally, some semblance of warmth has returned to much of the Midwestern US. High temperatures on Tuesday were above average for some locations over this area, which ended extended streaks of consecutive days below average. The featured map presents an accounting of these streaks valid through Tuesday. Values plotted in both and as negative numbers represent current streaks of days with the high temperature below average. The numerous red ones show the sites that finally made it above average on Tuesday for the first time in a while. Even warmer conditions are expected on Wednesday to likely end many of the other below average streaks on this plot. This warmth combined with heavy rainfall on deep snow pack, frozen soils, and ice covered rivers are going to create a flooding mess over the region.

Good = 22
