November Hours of 70+

Posted: 03 Nov 2022 05:27 AM

November has gotten off to a wonderful start with 70s common over Iowa during the afternoon hours and another day of it expected today. The featured chart presents an accounting of hours at or above 70 during November for Des Moines. The 2022 total of thirteen hours is already way above a long term and simple average of five. The top panels shows that a number of years, including last year, failed to even once reach 70, so this year is a bit of a treat. Even with a significant rainfall event arriving on Friday, temperatures next week do not look all that bad. The pessimist here is certain we will "pay for this" with much worse weather sooner than later!

Good = 11
Bad = 0
