Tale of Three Cities

Posted: 22 Nov 2011 05:48 AM

You may have remembered it like yesterday, but back on the 7th of July the three cities of Burlington, IA , Miami, FL, and Fairbanks, AK had a high temperature within two degrees of each other around 80 degrees. Fast forward a bit more than 4 months and a much different tale is to be told. While Fairbanks struggled to breach -30 degrees, Miami enjoyed a warm 85 and Burlington was stuck somewhere the middle around 40 degrees. This graph makes the directional choice for Iowans going on vacation in the winter easy.

Good = 20
Bad = 1
