Besting all of winter

Posted: 07 Mar 2012 05:52 AM

Temperatures on Tuesday soared into the 70s for much of the state. For Des Moines, the high of 74 tied a record for the date and was the warmest temperature since the start of winter. The featured chart presents a time series of temperature along with the daily high and low climatology. Our periods below average have been brief and not all that cold. Temperatures this morning are still very warm, but will drop later today with the passage of a cold front.

Good = 18
Bad = 5
