Iowa weather’s setting more records this week. After a mild autumn, a dry year-end and a snowless Christmas, the next milestone “arose” Tuesday as the temperatures rose, and rose. Records that have stood for half a century or more fell when Des Moines and Waterloo hit 59 degrees, Ottumwa recorded 58 and Lamoni and Mason City both checked in with 57. In Atlantic the afternoon high reached 63, shattering a record set at the turn of the LAST century, in the year 1900. Forecasters see a chance for it to happen again today, before a twenty-degree drop in temps returns us to more normal seasonal weather.
