Highs of 90+ in August

Posted: 02 Aug 2018 05:34 AM

Having the calendar now say August always brings some optimism about the fast approaching fall season, but there is still plenty of time for summer during the month. The featured chart displays the daily frequencies of the high temperature being at or above 90 for Ames during August. The values labelled on the bars are the number of previous years meeting the criterion. While there is some downward slope to this chart, the magnitude is not significant meaning that each day has about the same chance of reaching 90. The forecast currently has a few days approaching 90 during the coming seven days.

Good = 8
Bad = 0
