Bitter March Wind Chills

04 Mar 2019 05:35 AM
Even with the calendar now into March, winter is not quitting with additional rounds of light snowfall over the weekend and very bitter wind chills on Sunday and now into Monday. The featured table displays the hourly wind chill temperatures for Des Moines along with the most recent March date with a colder wind chill temperature. Note that all these wind chill values were computed with the present day formula. The 8 PM reading of -21 was the coldest that the IEM has on record for the site at that hour for March. The weather this week looks to continue the winter pain with only slightly above freezing temperatures this coming weekend to look forward to, but along with it will come more snow.

Good: 11
Bad: 1
