Move to Anchorage

Posted: 19 May 2014 05:36 AM

After an ugly stretch of cold weather last week, this weekend was delightful with sunshine and pleasant high temperatures. It was even warmer in Waterloo than Anchorage Alaska again on Sunday! The featured chart compares the daily high temperatures this year between the sites. The red bars indicate days that were warmer in Ames and the blue bars are for Anchorage. The black line represents the daily difference in high temperature climatology (it should be warmer for Waterloo on average). The totals for warmest days this year shows Anchorage winning! Before you decide to move there for warmer weather, much warmer air will be here for this week with highs near 80 and highs for Anchorage near 60!

Good = 20
Bad = 2
Abstain = 2
