Three days of 70+

Posted: 08 Mar 2016 03:35 AM

Temperatures for the past few days have been a refreshing taste of springtime in Iowa. The high temperature for Des Moines reached 70+ degrees for each of the past two days and has a chance to reach it again today. The featured chart displays the frequency of having a 3+ day stretch of 70+ degree high temperatures for Des Moines. If this were to happen today, it would be the second earliest streak on record for the site (behind 5-7 March 2000). As shown by the chart, having such a streak only becomes common (above 50% frequency) by the end of May!

Good = 20
Bad = 26
Abstain = 12
