Early 80

Posted: 08 Mar 2017 05:35 AM

Amidst the numerous severe storms in Iowa on Monday rightly grabbing the headlines, the record high temperatures set were impressive as well. Sioux City reached 80 degrees on the 6th of March making for the earliest such 80+ degree temperature on record. Ironically, the previous earliest was just last year on the 7th. The featured chart displays the combination of first date at or above 80 and the subsequent number of days that year above that level. It is nice to think about all the warm weather that remains ahead of us as this would only be day one out of an average of 92 days!

Good = 9
Bad = 0
