THE YEAR 2017 WAS THE TENTH WARMEST ON RECORD AT PORTLAND AND THE
THIRD CONSECUTIVE DRIER THAN NORMAL YEAR. IT FEATURED A JANUARY THAT
WAS WARMER THAN BOTH FEBRUARY AND MARCH, A MARCH BLIZZARD, A COLD
SPRING, A VERY WARM FALL, HEAVY RAINS AND WINDS IN OCTOBER, AND THE
COLDEST DECEMBER IN NEARLY 30 YEARS.

THE YEAR STARTED OUT WITH SOME WARMER THAN NORMAL WEATHER WHICH
WOULD EXEMPLIFY THE TERM "JANUARY THAW." ONLY 5 DAYS IN JANUARY WERE
COLDER THAN NORMAL; THE REST WERE WARMER THAN NORMAL. THE WARMEST
STRETCH WAS JANUARY 11 THRU 13 WHEN THE TEMPERATURE TOPPED 50
DEGREES FOR 3 STRAIGHT DAYS. THE WARM TEMPERATURES AND SOME RAIN
ELIMINATED THE EARLY SEASON SNOW PACK. ALTHOUGH MORE SNOW FELL ON
JANUARY 19, THE WARM WEATHER BROUGHT THIS DOWN TO JUST A TRACE IN
ONLY A FEW DAYS. BY MID FEBRUARY THERE WAS A SHIFT IN THE WEATHER
PATTERN THAT BROUGHT AN EXCEPTIONAL PERIOD OF COLD AND SNOWY
WEATHER. SNOW WAS OBSERVED ON 9 OUT OF 10 DAYS FROM FEBRUARY 7 THRU
16, TOTALING MORE THAN 39 INCHES. ALTHOUGH THIS EXTREMELY SNOWY
WEATHER WAS EXCEPTIONAL, IT TOO WOULD NOT LAST AS THE WARM WEATHER
RETURNED FOR THE END OF THE MONTH. TEMPERATURES IN THE 40S AND 50S
MELTED MOST OF THAT SNOW BY THE END OF FEBRUARY.

ALTHOUGH MARCH IS THE FIRST MONTH OF METEOROLOGICAL SPRING, THE
WEATHER DID NOT AGREE THIS YEAR. A COLD FRONT ON MARCH 2 WAS THE
FIRST SIGN THAT THE PATTERN WAS CHANGING. ALTHOUGH IT WARMED UP
BRIEFLY A FEW DAYS LATER, ANOTHER STRONG FRONT ON MARCH 9 BROUGHT 7
STRAIGHT DAYS OF SUBFREEZING TEMPERATURES. DURING THE MIDDLE OF THIS
COLD PERIOD, A STRONG NOR`EASTER BROUGHT MORE THAN 16 INCHES OF
SNOWFALL ON MARCH 14 ALONG WITH WINDS GUSTING TO 59 MPH CAUSING
BLIZZARD CONDITIONS. THE COLD WEATHER PERSISTED FOR A FEW MORE
WEEKS, WITH ANOTHER SNOWSTORM DROPPING NEARLY 11 INCHES OF SNOW AS
THE CALENDAR TURNED TO APRIL. BUT THE COLD WAS GRADUALLY LOSING ITS
GRIP AS THE WARMTH OF SPRING WOULD NOT BE STOPPED. WARMER
TEMPERATURES AND SOME RAINFALL HELPED TO RID PORTLAND OF ITS SNOW
PACK BY APRIL 8. THE TEMPERATURE TOPPED 60 DEGREES FOR 7 STRAIGHT
DAYS FROM APRIL 10 THRU 17, INCLUDING 76 ON APRIL 11 AND 86 DEGREES
ON EASTER SUNDAY, APRIL 16. SPRING BECAME A BATTLE BETWEEN BUILDING
WARMTH IN THE INTERIOR OF NORTH AMERICA AND THE COOL, MOIST
INFLUENCE OF THE GULF OF MAINE. THUS FOR SEVERAL WEEKS, MOST DAYS
WERE COOL WITH FREQUENT LIGHT RAINFALL, BUT THE WARM AIR WOULD MAKE
PERIODIC BREAKTHROUGHS. RAIN WAS OBSERVED ON 21 OUT OF 27 DAYS FROM
APRIL 19 THRU MAY 15. A FEW OF THE WARMER BREAKS INCLUDED 81 DEGREES
ON APRIL 29, 93 DEGREES ON MAY 18 (THE HOTTEST TEMPERATURE OF 2017)
AND 85 DEGREES ON MAY 19. THE LAST FREEZE OF THE SEASON WAS ON MAY
9, ABOUT A WEEK LATER THAN NORMAL. A NOR`EASTER MOVING UP THE COAST
BROUGHT 2.77 INCHES OF RAINFALL ON MAY 25 AND 26, THE HEAVIEST
RAINFALL OF 2017.

BY THE MIDDLE OF JUNE THE WARMER PERIODS BECAME MORE FREQUENT AND
LONG LASTING. PORTLAND SAW THE TEMPERATURE RISE TO NEAR 90 FOR 3
DAYS FROM JUNE 11 THRU 13. THEN PORTLAND SAW 6 OUT OF 7 DAYS TOP 80
DEGREES FROM JUNE 19 THRU 25. ALTHOUGH RAIN WAS OBSERVED ON 20 DAYS
DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE, THE TOTAL PRECIPITATION WAS MORE THAN AN
INCH BELOW NORMAL. THIS DRIER TREND CONTINUED INTO JULY WHICH
FINISHED MORE THAN 2.5 INCHES BELOW NORMAL. THE DRY CONDITIONS WERE
ACCOMPANIED BY LOW HUMIDITY AS WELL, WHICH LED TO SOME COOL
NIGHTTIME TEMPERATURES DURING THE SUMMER. THE AVERAGE LOW
TEMPERATURE IN AUGUST WAS THE COOLEST SINCE 1995. ALTHOUGH NIGHTTIME
LOWS WERE OFTEN COOL, DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WERE NEAR NORMAL THIS
SUMMER. ALTHOUGH TEMPERATURES FREQUENTLY WARMED INTO THE 80S,
PORTLAND DID NOT HIT 90 DEGREES AGAIN AFTER THE SUMMER SOLSTICE. A
FRONTAL SYSTEM BROUGHT 1.91 INCHES OF RAINFALL ON AUGUST 18, THE
ONLY SUBSTANTIAL RAINFALL BETWEEN LATE MAY AND LATE OCTOBER.

WHILE THE CALENDAR TURNED TO SEPTEMBER, FALL TEMPERATURES WERE SLOW
TO ARRIVE. THE COOL, DRY LATE-SUMMER WEATHER PATTERN HAD BEGUN TO
SHIFT AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE WESTERN ATLANTIC PUMPED
WARM, HUMID AIR INTO NEW ENGLAND FOR MUCH OF THE AUTUMN. PORTLAND
HAD A STRETCH OF 5 STRAIGHT DAYS IN THE 80S FROM SEPTEMBER 23 THRU
27. A FEW PERIODIC COLD FRONTS BROUGHT BRIEFLY COOLER CONDITIONS,
BUT THE WARM WEATHER KEPT RETURNING. OCTOBER ENDED UP BEING THE
WARMEST ON RECORD AT PORTLAND, WITH PORTLAND MAKING IT THROUGH THE
END OF OCTOBER WITHOUT GETTING ITS FIRST FREEZE FOR ONLY THE SECOND
TIME EVER. BY THE LAST WEEK OF OCTOBER THERE WERE SOME SIGNS OF A
CHANGE IN THE WEATHER PATTERN AS A SERIES OF STORM SYSTEMS BROUGHT
SOME HEAVY RAIN TO THE REGION. THE FIRST BROUGHT MORE THAN 3 INCHES
OF RAIN ON OCTOBER 25 AND 26, WHILE THE NEXT ONE BROUGHT MORE WIND
THAN RAIN. ALTHOUGH MORE THAN AN INCH OF RAIN FELL ON THE NIGHT OF
OCTOBER 29 INTO THE MORNING OF OCTOBER 30, THE WIND GUST TO 69 MPH
WAS THE BIGGER STORY AS THIS BROUGHT WIND DAMAGE AND EXTENDED POWER
OUTAGES FOR SOME RESIDENTS. THE FOLLOWING TABLE LISTS ALL THE
RECORDED WIND GUSTS OF 60 MPH OR HIGHER AT PORTLAND.

  IT IS POSSIBLE THAT A HIGHER GUST MAY HAVE OCCURRED, BUT IT WAS
  NOT RECORDED.

PORTLAND FINALLY SAW ITS FIRST FREEZE OF THE SEASON ON NOVEMBER 1,
THE SECOND LATEST DATE OF THE FIRST FALL FREEZE ON RECORD. BUT THE
WARM WEATHER MADE A BRIEF COME BACK WHEN THE TEMPERATURE WARMED TO
70 DEGREES ON NOVEMBER 3. A COLD FRONT ON NOVEMBER 6 BROUGHT COLDER
AIR INTO THE AREA, WITH ANOTHER STRONGER FRONT BRINGING EVEN COLDER
AIR STRAIGHT OUT OF THE ARCTIC A FEW DAYS LATER. THE TEMPERATURE
DROPPED ALL THE WAY TO 17 DEGREES ON NOVEMBER 11, A SHOCKING CHANGE
FROM THE PERSISTENT WARMTH THAT HAD BEEN OBSERVED THROUGH THE FALL
SO FAR. ALTHOUGH THE INTENSE COLD GRADUALLY ABATED, A SERIES OF COLD
FRONTS KEPT BRINGING MORE COLD AIR INTO THE AREA. THERE WAS A BRIEF
BREAK IN THE COLD IN EARLY DECEMBER WHEN PORTLAND WARMED INTO THE
50S, BUT THIS WAS NOT TO LAST. A SNOWSTORM ON DECEMBER 9 BROUGHT
MORE THAN 6 INCHES OF SNOW, THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL OF THE
SEASON. ANOTHER STORM BROUGHT SNOW CHANGING TO FREEZING RAIN ON
DECEMBER 12, WITH MUCH COLD AIR POURING IN BEHIND THE STORM. THE
NEXT TWO STORMS BROUGHT SIMILAR CONDITIONS, SNOW CHANGING TO
FREEZING RAIN. ONE MORE SNOWSTORM ARRIVED ON CHRISTMAS MORNING WITH
5 INCHES OF SNOW FALLING IN JUST A FEW HOURS. THIS STORM WAS AGAIN
FOLLOWED BY MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES. THE TEMPERATURE DID NOT RISE
ABOVE FREEZING AGAIN FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR, WITH THE LAST 5 DAYS
OF THE YEAR NOT WARMING ABOVE 15 DEGREES AND FALLING BELOW ZERO EACH
NIGHT.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE YEAR WAS 47.6 DEGREES WHICH WAS 1.1
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL AND THE 10TH WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD. THE
WARMEST YEAR WAS 49.2 DEGREES IN 2012 AND 2010. THE COLDEST WAS 43.3
DEGREES IN 1962. THE FOLLOWING TABLE LISTS THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
FOR EACH MONTH OF 2017 INCLUDING DEPARTURES FROM NORMAL.

A TOTAL OF 43.63 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL WHICH WAS 3.62 INCHES
BELOW NORMAL. INCLUDING THIS YEAR, 4 OF THE PAST 5 YEARS HAVE BEEN
DRIER THAN NORMAL. THIS IS REMARKABLE DUE TO THE STRING OF 8 YEARS
OF WETTER THAN NORMAL CONDITIONS THAT PRECEDED IT (DATING BACK TO
2005). MANY OF THOSE WET YEARS WERE MUCH WETTER THAN NORMAL,
AVERAGING MORE THAN 56 INCHES PER YEAR FROM 2005 TO 2012. THE
HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION OF 2017 FELL IN LATE OCTOBER WHEN MORE THAN
4.5 INCHES WAS MEASURED IN THE LAST WEEK OF THE MONTH. THE DRIEST
YEAR ON RECORD WAS IN 1941 WHEN ONLY 25.27 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION
WAS OBSERVED. THE WETTEST WAS IN 2005 WHEN 66.45 INCHES FELL. THE

35.5 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL AND THE MOST SINCE 2005 (116.0). THE
HEAVIEST SNOWSTORM WAS ON MARCH 14 AND 15 WHEN 16.4 INCHES OF SNOW
WAS MEASURED. THERE WERE 18 DAYS WHICH MEASURED AT LEAST 1.0 INCH OF
SNOWFALL. AT LEAST 6.0 INCHES WAS RECORDED ON 7 DAYS IN 2017, TIED

APRIL. THE LAST OF THE WINTER SNOW PACK MELTED ON APRIL 7, ABOUT A
MONTH LATER THAN NORMAL. THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL IN DECEMBER
WAS FOLLOWED BY COLD AND MORE SNOW WHICH KEPT THE SNOW ON THE GROUND
THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR. THERE WERE A TOTAL OF 87 DAYS WITH AT
LEAST 1 INCH OF SNOW ON THE GROUND, 19 DAYS MORE THAN NORMAL. THERE
WERE 36 DAYS WITH AT LEAST 6 INCHES ON THE GROUND, 1 DAY MORE THAN
NORMAL. THERE WERE 7 DAYS WITH AT LEAST 12 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE
