ALL-TIME WINTER WARMTH

NOW MORE THAN EVER I NEED YOUR HELP WITH OPERATING EXPENSES

THE FUTURE OF THE SITE DEPENDS ON YOU. 

Hi everyone, as you know, TSwails.com is a no-pay site; existing on voluntary subscriptions or personal donations. If you find value in the site, I'm asking kindly that you make the donation you feel is worthy. I'm suggesting $20.00, roughly a nickel a day. Less than 5% of my readers donate, so your gift is not only appreciated, it helps immensely. Your contribution, whatever you can swing, supports the content, infrastructure, and operational costs. Thanks for anything you can do.


ONE FOR THE RECORD BOOKS

Today (and mostly like tomorrow), will be huge for winter warmth. Record highs have already been established in many areas. By the end of the day, all locations will reach record-breaking levels for February 26th which are listed below.

Similar temperatures are expected Tuesday, which will mean many more (if not all stations) will set new marks. You can see the thresholds needed to be met for daily record highs Tuesday, February 27th.


The bigger question is can either day produce a reading warm enough to set records for all-time February highs and even more impressive, ALL-TIME WINTER HIGHS? (winter encompasses the months of December-February). Lack of snow cover, dry ground, low humidity levels, deep mixing, full sunshine, and strong southerly winds are all factors contributing to these historically warm temperatures.


In most areas this afternoon, temperatures will be 29–34 degrees above the seasonal norms.


ALL-TIME WINTER TEMPERATURES

The all-time warmest winter temperatures in my area are listed below.


CEDAR RAPIDS....76

BURLINGTON........76

MOLINE.................74

DUBUQUE..............71


At 1:00pm. all of the above stations have set records for February 26. Moline and Burlington, at 73 and 74, are just 2 degrees from reaching all time winter warmth. Cedar Rapids at 73 is just 3 degrees from such an honor! Chances are high that these cities will all see their all-time highest winter temperature this afternoon. Take a picture, it will last longer! Seriously, this is rare air, do your best to enjoy it.


In my next post, I will update where we end up with today's records and where we may go tomorrow. We'll also look at the potential for any strong storms tomorrow and any snow Tuesday night. (You heard me). After a frigid Wednesday, we head back up and could see more record highs this weekend as March creeps in like a lamb. Roll weather...TS PLEASE With my recent health issues, I very much need to reach my fund-raising goals, but we are getting closer. To keep things as they are, I'm in humble need of your donation to the site more than ever. If you use it and find value in it, please consider a contribution. Thanks to you who have already helped the cause!
