Latest Warmest Stretch of the Year

Posted: 26 Sep 2017 05:34 AM

A cold front has swept the state clean of the summer like air mass that has dominated our weather for the recent few days. High temperatures during this period were remarkably warm with values in the low 90s for most. In fact, over the recent five day stretch, places like Cedar Rapids had its warmest five day stretch of the year. The featured chart presents the warmest such periods each year along with a histogram of the day of the year that participated. The period this year shows up the furthest to the right (latest in the year) and a descent separation from the previously latest in mid September. More early Fall like temperatures are back for the rest of the week.

Good = 7
Bad = 1
