Frozen Days

Posted: 06 Dec 2011 05:57 AM

Ames experienced its first day with a high temperature below freezing on Sunday. The featured chart presents the number of days each winter with a daily high temperature below freezing along with the first day of winter below freezing. The first day this year is a bit later than normal. The bottom chart hints that having the first frozen day in December typically leads to a below average number of frozen days for the winter season. If this were to happen, it would buck the recent trend shown in the middle figure of having above average number of days per year with a high temperature below freezing.

Good = 14
Bad = 3
