REMARKS...

CONDITIONS THIS MONTH WERE DOMINATED BY AN ATMOSPHERIC PATTERN THAT
FAVORED LARGE DAY-TO-DAY CHANGES IN TEMPERATURES AND GENERALLY
LIMITED OPPORTUNITIES FOR SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION. LIGHT SNOW FELL
FAIRLY FREQUENTLY IN THE LATTER PORTIONS OF THE MONTH BUT WAS
USUALLY LIGHT. THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH RANKED AS THE
20TH COLDEST FOR ANY FEBRUARY ON RECORD AS COLD AIR FREQUENTLY
INVADED THE AREA FROM THE NORTH AND NORTHWEST.
