Besting the Month in One Day

Posted: 03 Feb 2015 05:40 AM

The initial rainfall and subsequent liquid equivalent snowfall produced significant totals of precipitation for this time of the year. For Des Moines, the daily total on Jan 31st was greater than the total for all other days for that month. The featured chart presents the frequency of a given month having at least one half of its precipitation total fall in one day. November easily wins the competition with over half of the years meeting this criterion.

Good = 14
Bad = 4
Abstain = 2
