Reaching 80+ in June

Posted: 01 Jun 2017 05:02 AM

Our recent stretch of weather has not seen much in the way of hot weather. It has been since mid May that temperatures were well into the 80s and even some 90s. The featured chart looks at the frequency of daily high temperatures in June being at 80+ degrees for Des Moines. While we are past Memorial Day and into June, if this temperature level is your threshold for summer, we still have a week or so to go before this warmth rises above the 50% level (meaning more common than not). The actual forecast says a bit otherwise with warm and muggier air arriving tomorrow and sticking around for the weekend.

Good = 6
Bad = 0
