September 80+

Posted: 24 Sep 2021 05:35 AM

Daily high temperatures are rebounding after a few very crisp fall days this week with highs by the end of the weekend and into next week back into the 80s. We have seen more than our fair share of warm temperatures this September with the featured chart presenting the total number of hourly reports from the Ames Airport of at least a 80 degrees. The top panel shows the total each year during September and the bottom panel breaks it down by hour per day. Such warm temperatures are relegated to the daytime and early dusk hours as humidity levels and soil temperatures are not high enough to counter strong overnight cooling.

Good = 16
Bad = 3
