Beating February 1954

Posted: 14 Feb 2017 05:34 AM

For Ames and by average temperature, February 1954 is the warmest February on record. The forecast for the rest of February 2017 looks rather warm and one may wonder if we have a chance to set the warmest February on record. The featured chart displays the combination of this year's month to date average temperature along with scenarios based on each of the previous months. None of these scenarios beat 1954, but that doesn't imply that it is impossible. Along with warm temperatures, there appears to be plenty of sunshine, which will be welcome after the gloomy January.

Good = 9
Bad = 0
