Two Days of 83+

Posted: 24 Oct 2022 05:30 AM

It was a remarkable weekend of late October weather with temperatures soaring into the 70s and even 80s. This was after record cold earlier last week along with some brief snow flurries over far eastern Iowa. The Des Moines Airport hit 83 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday. The featured chart presents the daily frequency of the given day participating within a streak of at least two days with a high temperature of at least 83 degrees. The past two day streak shows up in the top 10 for latest on record. The chart also clearly shows that such streaks have not been observed after the first of November until mid March, so hopefully you enjoyed the extreme warmth while it lasted. The forecast this week has cooler temperatures, but still quite seasonal for this time of year.

Good = 13
Bad = 0
