Frozen November Periods

Posted: 02 Dec 2013 05:37 AM

Much of the last part of November was rather cold with high temperatures some days struggling to break freezing. For Des Moines, a period of 92 hours experienced sub freezing temperatures during the month. The featured chart presents the longest such period during November for each year back to 1936. This year's period was the longest since 1996. The first week of December looks rather interesting with some portions of the state experiencing very warm temperatures and others stuck with colder temps. Everybody will be cold by the coming weekend with daily highs back below freezing.

Good = 26
Bad = 6
Abstain = 5
