December 60s

Posted: 01 Dec 2021 05:35 AM

Welcome to December and very welcome is a mild start to the month with 60 degrees in the forecast for today and again tomorrow. The featured chart presents the daily frequency during December of reaching at least 60 degrees for Des Moines. For four days during the month, such a warm temperature would set a record high and the overall average is just having one day every two years. The numbers shown above the bars are the actual number of years having such a warm temperature. The eternal pessimist wonders when we will have to "pay for" such great weather, but until then, enjoy it!

Good = 14
Bad = 1
