Past IEM Features tagged: winds
Temperatures warmed nicely on Tuesday thanks to sunshine and warm winds. The featured chart presents the frequency of having a 3 PM temperature 5 or more degrees warmer than average at 3 PM, or at least 5 degrees cooler than average and wind speeds at least 10 mph. The overall frequency of having wind speeds over 10 mph is shown as well. The significant difference among the three lines is during the warm half of the year with above average temperatures having ten plus mph winds more frequently. This shows that when temperatures are warm in Iowa, there is more often a breeze as well.
