Hours of Wind Chill

Posted: 06 Jan 2022 09:25 PM

The thought of setting an all-time record high temperature during the month of December, just last month, is a bit of a far off memory given the plunge into the deep freeze this week. Wind chill temperatures today were well below 0F. The featured chart presents the number of accumulated hours with a wind chill temperature at or below the given threshold for Ames by season for the season to date period. The blue line shows the 2021-2022 accumulated total with each previous year on record plotted in tan along with selected percentile values. The accumulation this year has been below average for most thresholds. We will have another chilly today on Friday before a bit warmer weather moves in for the weekend and next week.

Good = 15
Bad = 1
