Radio Iowa – March 10, 2014 By Pat Curtis
An annual report released by the University of Iowa estimates 6,400 Iowans will die from cancer this year and 17,400 residents will be diagnosed with some type of cancer.
Monday’s high of 57 was not a record for the date-but Clinton area weather observer Jim Blaess says you have to look back to November 17th for a warmer temperature when it was 71.
He says Monday was third time since December first when the temperature has been 50 or above.
The weather observer also said that in the 100 days from December first to March10th there were 75 days with below normal temperatures.
