Ups and Downs of Winter

Posted: 10 Feb 2015 05:44 AM

Less than three weeks remain to the Meteorological Winter Season (1 Dec - 28 Feb). The featured chart presents hourly temperatures from the Ames Airport weather sensor for this period along with the daily high and low temperature climatology. We have had stretches of warm and cold weather so far this season. The lack of snow cover for much of the season is a big reason why we had warm periods. The near term forecast has us returning to a cold stretch.

Good = 13
Bad = 7
Abstain = 4
