Winter So Far
This winter reminds me of those during the 1980s. Real cold with snow and ice! It has been a brutal onslaught of snow, cold, and ice, especially since the middle of January. We are now finally going to get a break for quite awhile, however I think the cold will come back. I know some of you probably do not want to hear that. We have to remember that it's still only the middle of February.
So where are we so far this winter and so far this month? Of course these numbers will change with a couple of weeks to go in February. Remember, meteorological winter is defined as December through February so the final winter numbers will be completed at the end of the month too.
If winter were to end today....
It would be the 5th coldest on record by average temperature.
It would be the 6th coldest on record by average low temperature
If February ended today...
It would be the coldest February on record by average monthly temperature
It would be the coldest February on record by average high temperature
It would be the 5th coldest February on record by average low temperature
There's no doubt these numbers will be affected by the huge warm up heading our way this weekend into next week. However, there are signs colder weather will return by the end of the month. How cold? That's yet to be determined. Saying it's going to get chilly again really isn't going out on a limb. After all, it's still February. Enjoy the next week!
