Posted: 16 May 2011 05:53 AM

This weekend saw temperatures struggle to reach 50 on Saturday and 60 on Sunday thanks to cloud cover and northerly winds. The featured chart presents the wind direction and air temperature since 15 April for Ames. The observations where the winds were from a direction between south and west are highlighted in red. These winds typically bring us warm air this time of year. This week will start off with plenty of sunshine and slowly warming temperatures.

Good = 9
Bad = 4
