We’re Halfway There! Some Numbers On The Winter So Far

Every one is now singing that Bon Jovi song after reading the title right? Well, we are at the halfway point of winter with spring rolling around in less than six weeks. If this bitterly cold start to our weekend has you thinking ahead to spring you are not alone.

Climatologically speaking, the coldest part of winter is over as our average daytime highs continue to increase! Daylight is also increasing to a tune of about two minutes per day.

The first half of winter wasn’t so bad as we really only had that one “big” snow storm in January that dropped 4-9″ of snow from west (4″) to east (9″). The cold has been brutal at times, but only in very short episodes. As a whole the winter so far is above normal in that department. Here is the breakdown.

With the exception of this (Saturday) morning February has continued warm trend that got us to this point. Going forward that should continue overall, but there will also be some big time cold shots leading to big time temperature swings over the next couple of months. While there is still some cold and probably some more snow in our future, you can’t fight the sun angle! Before you know we will all be complaining that it’s too hot outside!
