Warmest Three Day Period

Posted: 19 Jul 2016 05:28 AM

The featured chart displays the warmest three consecutive day period for Des Moines for daily high temperature each year. The top panel shows the actual three day period each year and the bottom panel presents a histogram of these periods by day of the year. July is certainly the favored month for this metric, but they have happened in the past from May to even September. It will be interesting to see if the upcoming hot weather later this week will surpass the warm stretches back in June.

Good = 8
Bad = 0
