February Notes...

    When getting the rankings for temperature I spotted a quick and easy explanation about looking at trends.  After getting the data posted above I grabbed an image of that section of my spreadsheet titles ‘weather averages’.  This spreadsheet contains  all of the months of the weather items I keep track of.  Thinking about that...I guess of all the spreadsheets I have, this one is probably the most important one.

    Anyway, here is the graphic:



    After having one of a the coldest February temps in my records, when you look at this graphic you can see that the February Average is warmer than the February 20 year average.  The ‘Feb avg’ is all 22 of them.  The 20 year avg is 1998-2017.  So the February temps in this year and last combined actually are warmer than the average of the preceding 20 years, therefore they raised the complete February average temp 0.15°.

    Actually the average temp of this year and last is a lot higher than the 20 year average, coming in at 25.43°.  That is 1.74° above the 20 year average.  However I prefer longer periods than only two years when making comparisons of multi-years.  

    I hope this gets across the value of long term trends over much shorter time period snippets.

(The average high from February of 2018 is red because it is the warmest in the list for that data piece.) 


    One record high was recorded on Feb 5th.  Two record lows were recorded late in the month. On the 27th temps dropped below 0° for the first time in the cold month.  The record low on the 28th tied the record established in 2008 at 3.0°.  There were no records set on the tangent records (cold high temps and warm low temps) this month.

    We had a lot of small storms this month.  Also the dry days seemed to have lower humidity levels.  Luckily the frequent small storms kept the lips and knuckles from drying out.
