First streak of below-normal temperatures in nearly a month

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - High temperatures the past couple of days have come up short of normal, and will be that way through Friday. That’ll give four straight days of below-normal high temperatures in Cedar Rapids. That’s the longest streak since February 5 through 12. Each of those days was at least 10 degrees below normal, so this little spurt of chillier weather isn’t so bad by comparison.

Since February 7, Cedar Rapids has had 14 days had a high temperature that was above normal and 11 days were below normal. Four were right at normal. In Dubuque, 16 days over the past month were above normal and 13 were below normal. Iowa City logged 16 above-normal highs, 10 below-normal highs, and three that hit normal on the nose. In Waterloo, there were 11 days of above-normal highs, 17 below-normal highs, and one at normal.
