Warm September

Posted: 30 Sep 2013 05:43 AM

The featured map displays the average September temperature rank for the long term climate sites in Iowa. For Des Moines, this September is currently the third warmest on record, but other sites in the state have ranks ranging from 7 to 28. The difference is probably due to the enhanced urban heat island effect for Des Moines. Temperatures will continue to be warm to finish off September today and it'll continue into October with highs in the 80s for much of Iowa.

Good = 42
Bad = 7
