Recent Drops to Average

Posted: 03 Nov 2017 05:35 AM

Our recent stretch of very cold weather finally put an end to the frost free growing season for the state. The featured chart displays some statistics on the season to date coldest low temperature for Ames. The time series for this year is shown by the blue line with the black line representing the long term average. Our recent drops have put this year near average for the to date period. The pink area represents the range between the minimum and maximum with this year very close to the top during early October. Of course, the cold weather is only getting started for the season and the chart shows the amount of room to the downside yet to go before the end of the year!
