StormTeam10: 70° in February is SO rare
Exactly how rare is it for the temperature to reach 70° in February? Well Friday was just the 3rd time in over 85 years of record keeping that it happened!
- 72° on 2/24/1985
- 72° on 2/18/1981
- 71° today!
It was no surprise many of you took advantage of the warm weather and spent some time outside...some of you got a little aggressive! (ocean temps near 40 degrees so it was a quick dip for these swimmers in Middletown!)
After a cold and snowy start to the month, this February has REALLY turned around. Right now we are on pace for the 7th warmest Winter season all time. Winter defined as the months of December, January & February.
One more mild late February day is on tap for Saturday then a bit of a cool down for Sunday. But we will round out the month above average. Although not as warm as last winter this season was not far behind...now it's onto Spring!
