Frequency below Freezing

Posted: 12 Feb 2015 05:45 AM

Temperatures will struggle today to reach the upper teens as a brisk reminder of the winter season arrives in Iowa. The featured chart looks at the hourly frequency of having a sub freezing temperature partitioned by week of the year. For mid February, having a sub freezing temperature is very common for the night time hours, but the afternoon hours are slightly less than 50%. The chart would indicate that we have at least one month of time to go before this type of weather becomes uncommon. You can generate this chart on the website for other sites and temperature thresholds of your choice.

Good = 15
Bad = 7
Abstain = 5
