80 degree days

Posted: 12 Jun 2014 05:36 AM

The thermostat hit 80+ degrees for many parts of the state on Wednesday. The featured chart totals up the 80+ degree days for Ames year to date for this year and past years. The overall plot average is 16 days, so this year's total (14) is only slightly below that. We are well ahead of 2013, but less than half of 2012's total. Cooler temperatures with highs back in the 70s are expected for the rest of the week with a return to the 80s next week.

Good = 13
Bad = 6
Abstain = 6
