What’s happening in Iowa? Generally, Iowa has been a place of transient weather, alternating between good weather and bad weather. This week however, Iowa has been a model of tranquility and perfect weather. This will continue tomorrow as Iowa tops the list for the 2nd day in a row…and I expect it to be in the top 5 through the weekend! An area of high pressure is stuck over the Upper Midwest, which puts Iowa and a few other states in the sweet spot. Thursday the western part of the state will be best with perfect 10’s in: Spencer, Cherokee, Harlan, Des Moines, and Knoxville. This area of perfect weather will extend north through Minnesota through Marshall, Montevideo, and Morris.
Out West, more great weather west of the Continental Divide. Idaho has a high concentration of 10’s including: Rexburg, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, and Soda Springs. Futher south, some of the National Parks will see perfect weather including: Zion, the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and parts of Canyon De Chelly in Arizona. A few other picks out West include: Interlaken, California…Cisco, California…Lasen National Park, California…and Welches, Oregon.
Not much happening in the frost world right now. Looks like the UP of Michigan will see a hard freeze tonight, but do they really care?
