February Frozen Days

Posted: 02 Feb 2018 05:34 AM

The calendar day high temperatures on Thursday failed to breach the freezing level making for a frozen day. The featured chart looks at the frequency of such days during February for Ames. The labels on the bars are the actual number of years over the period of record that the high was below 32 degrees. Of course, Feb 29th shows up a bit funny as there have been one quarter as many of those days than others in February. The slope is downward going from just over 50% to start the month to under 30% by the end. So such days become less common as we slowly inch toward spring!

Good = 14
Bad = 2
Abstain = 1
