First Frozen Date

Posted: 08 Dec 2016 05:34 AM

The high temperature on Wednesday only reached 32 degrees for the extreme SE tip of Iowa. This made for the first frozen day for most of the state (first day of the winter season with the high temperature below 32). The featured chart displays the first date each winter season for this threshold and the number of days for the same season meeting that threshold as well. The year presented represents the December month of the winter season, so 2016 is the winter of 2016-2017. If we have an average winter, we have 44 more frozen days to go!

Good = 6
Bad = 0
