Days with Fog Reported

Posted: 14 Nov 2017 05:33 AM

Dense Fog was common over Iowa on Monday. The featured chart presents the number of days each month that at least one hourly report of Fog was made for the Des Moines Airport. This is based on the archive of hourly METAR reports from the site. Of course, not all days that report Fog are dense enough to warrant advisories, like those issued on Monday. The blue bars are the simply monthly average for period of record and red are so far this year. For the year, this chart would indicate the number of days with fog reported to be below average.

Good = 9
Bad = 1
