Well, it is not November and it should be cold…right? I am sure at some point this month it will be, but not right now. Temperatures at noon are near 70.
The normal high temperature for this time of year is 54. Record high temperatures for today are in the upper 70s.
Cedar Rapids 77
Iowa City 77
Yes, they are all 77 and all in 1938.
The stats above are interesting, but the chart below also gives some perspective as to reaching 70 degrees or warmer in November. The chart shows the number of times the temperature reached 70 degrees or warmer for each day during the month of November.
I will use today as an example how to read the chart. Waterloo has only seen 70 or warmer 11 times on November 2 and today will be number 12. The 11 times is about 9% of the time since records have been kept. The forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday is 70 or higher. Notice on the 4th (Wednesday) it has happened only 6 times on that day.
