Warmest stretches in March

Posted: 14 Mar 2012 05:54 AM

We have just started what appears to be a very warm stretch of weather in March. The featured chart presents the warmest periods in March as measured by the minimum high temperature over a given number of days. For example, the coolest high temperature during 1910 was just 40 degrees for the entire month. For Ames, the longest period of temperatures at or above 70 is 12 days and at or above 80 is 4 days. One has to continue to wonder how we will eventually pay for all of this warm winter weather!

Good = 18
Bad = 7
