January Fog Days

Posted: 24 Jan 2023 04:49 AM

Besides death and taxes, it appears dense fog is another certainty of life. Fog is again present over Iowa this Tuesday morning. The featured chart presents the number of days each month that the automated weather station in Marshalltown reported at least one hourly report of Fog. There are caveats with automated fog reports as equipment has changed over the years, but this year's total is certainly well above a simple climatology average. For this site and analysis, it would appear January is the peak for fog days, so that is something to look forward to as we creep closer to spring!

Good = 11
Bad = 0
