100 Degree Change

Posted: 04 Feb 2019 05:37 AM

After the brutal cold of last week, the weather this weekend was almost from a dream. Much of Iowa was able to reach the 50s on Sunday which obliterated most of the accumulated snow cover. The featured map displays the difference between the coldest wind chill value and the highest air temperature over the past few days based on a high resolution grid analysis from the NWS. Values topping 100 degrees are indicated in Iowa with an isolated area shown above 105 degrees! The trip to a 100 degree warm-up started with with wind chills well below negative 50 last week and ended on Sunday with highs around positive 50. The temperature whiplash continues today with falling temperatures on Monday and cold wind chills.

Good = 20
Bad = 0
