Start of Summer

Posted: 28 May 2015 05:43 AM

The unofficial period of summer is considered to be the days between Memorial Day and Labor Day. If you consider summer to be the 91 (quarter of the year) warmest day period of the year then the featured chart shows you when this period started for each of the past years for Ames. This analysis would indicate that we have, on average, just over a week left of spring before summer starts. The near term forecast would indicate that as well with pleasant temperatures for the next week.

Good = 15
Bad = 7
Abstain = 8
