November 70+ Hours

Posted: 09 Nov 2023 05:30 AM

Very warm air was just to the south of Iowa on Wednesday with record high temperatures found in places like St Louis (84) and Springfield, IL (79). The very far southeast corner of the state at Keokuk was able to reach 71 degrees. The featured chart looks into the November frequency of having an hourly temperature of at least 70 degrees for the site. This observation site only has data back to 1996, but shows an interesting story that having such warm temperatures during November is not a given with a number of years having zero hours. The overall and simple average is 21 hours. The forecast for next week continues to look very warm, so perhaps this total can be added to at this site and others in the state.

Good = 11
Bad = 0
