Warm November Combo

Posted: 07 Nov 2023 05:30 AM

Very nice temperatures on Sunday were surpassed by even warmer temperatures on Monday with highs reaching the low 70s over much of the state. This followed very mild morning low temperatures. The featured chart presents a histogram of daily high and low temperatures during November for Des Moines. The left panel shows the frequency of a given high and low temperature combination. The right panel presents some metrics for the daily range between the two. For low temperature, you can see frequency clustering around 32 degrees as freezing of water is exothermic and tends to slow down cooling along with soil temperatures that are still comfortably above freezing.

Good = 5
Bad = 2
