Most 80+ degree days

Posted: 26 Sep 2012 05:43 AM

Tuesday was yet another very warm day in Iowa this year. The high temperature hit 85 degrees in Des Moines and set the local record for most number of days at or above 80 degrees in a year. The featured chart presents the maximum number of days per year at or above the given threshold. 2012 is on pace to rewrite this metric for temperatures in the 70s and 80s. Days in the 70s and 80s remain in the immediate term forecast along with dry weather.

Good = 31
Bad = 6
