Posted: 24 Apr 2015 05:43 AM

The featured chart displays the climatology of year to date warmest temperature along with this years result for Ames. The low 80s we saw in mid March has yet to be topped since. It will likely take another week before we even get back to 70 as indicated by the current forecast. The corn planting season, which got off to a torrid pace has now slowed just as quickly with wet and cool conditions prevailing.

Good = 33
Bad = 28
