Warm winter so far

Posted: 20 Jan 2012 05:55 AM

The featured chart presents the percentage of days this winter (since 1 Dec) has been warmer than previous winters. Each day this winter is compared with the same day of the year for previous winters. The bars shown in blue are years with more days colder that winter than this one. So we have another plot showing how warm this winter has been so far, but our weather pattern has changed and normal winter has returned to Iowa. Snow will fall today and there is more snow in the forecast!

Good = 16
Bad = 4
