Days of 97+

03 Jul 2012 04:42 AM
Monday was yet another really warm day in Iowa with temperatures well into the 90s for most. Des Moines had a high temperature for the second straight day at or above 97 degrees. The featured chart looks at the longest such daily streaks of having a high temperature above 97 for each year since 1880. About two or three days are about as long as these hot spells last for years that even get this warm. The forecast suggests that we could reach seven days, which would be the longest streak since August 1983.

Good: 52
Bad: 5
