Late for 65 degree dewpoint

23 Oct 2012 05:51 AM
Very muggy air for this time of year visited Iowa on Monday. The dew point temperature reached 65 degrees Fahrenheit for Des Moines. It is very late in the year to have such a high dew point temperature as shown by the featured chart. Only two other years (1934, 2004) have experienced 65+ dewpoint after 22 October. Two more very warm days are expected before much colder air arrives and highs will only be in the 40s!

Goodbye 2004

It is time to say goodbye to 2004. For Iowa, this year will be remembered as a wild year for severe weather, a relatively cold summer that still produced a bumper crop of corn and soybeans, and a primary that ended Howard Dean's campaign. For the IEM, 2004 was another year for archiving and disseminating Iowa's weather and climate. Some stats about the IEM for 2004:

Thanks for your support this year and hopefully many years to come!
