Past IEM Features tagged: feb18
February was a wet month for some parts of the state. The featured chart presents the number of hours with measurable precipitation reported by the Burlington (far southeastern Iowa) Airport weather station (ASOS). The chart shows the hourly totals for this year, the maximum and the average based on period of record data. These types of charts can sometimes be problematic during the cold season as not all sites are capable of reporting precipitation during snowfall events. Regardless, the 38 hours this month are only a few shy of the 1998 total of 46.
