Week Early for 90

Posted: 25 May 2018 05:34 AM

Some of the warmest temperatures so far this year were experienced on Thursday with a few locations, like Ottumwa hitting 90 degrees for the first time. The featured chart looks at the climatology of year to date maximum temperature for the site. The average first 90 is about the first of June, so this was about a week ahead of schedule. The near term forecast looks hot, so it will be interesting to see if spring like temperatures will return or we have slipped right into summer. Of course, Memorial Day weekend is considered the start of summer as well!
