Plenty of Heat

Posted: 29 May 2018 05:32 AM

It is amazing to think that only a month ago, we were dealing with one of the coldest Aprils on record and numerous snow events. Fast forward to May and the heat has been on in a big way and record high temperatures were set each day of the Memorial Day weekend. The featured chart looks at the number of hours with the heat index at or above a given level for the year to date period. The long term average is plotted as well. This year's accumulated hours is well above long term average, particularly at the high end. We still have a few more hot days to go prior to a return to temperatures closer to average.

Good = 11
Bad = 1
