Consecutive Day Stats

Posted: 07 Dec 2017 05:34 AM

The featured chart presents consecutive day statistics for Ames based on long term daily high temperatures. The chart shows the maximum and minimum values of high temperature over a given number of consecutive days. For example, over a fifteen day period, the high temperature has averaged over 100 degrees and been over 100 degrees each day for the warmest period on record. Again for fifteen days, the coldest average high has been zero degrees with the high each day below about five degrees. Of course, we are nearer to the colder end of this range and even attempting such a cold period would require snow cover.

Good = 5
Bad = 10
