Three Days of 80+

Posted: 04 Jun 2024 05:30 AM

It is now June and summertime, so the increase in heat and humidity on Monday certainly reminded Iowans of the season we are currently in. Tuesday is expected to be another warm day with temperatures in the 80s and strong thunderstorms firing during the afternoon hours. Such a high temperature would make the third day in a row at 80°F plus for Ames. The featured chart presents the day of the year frequency for that day and the following two to have a high temperature of at least 80 degrees. June is certainly the ramp up month for this frequency with values increasing from 20% to 60% by the end of the month.

Good = 15
Bad = 0
