...REMARKS...FEBRUARY WAS A MONTH OF CONTRASTS. MOST OF THE RAIN
FOR THE MONTH FELL IN THE FIRST WEEK AS SEVERAL WARM STORM SYSTEMS
MOVED ACROSS THE AREA. THEN HIGH PRESSURE BUILT OVER THE AREA AND
BLOCKED THE SYSTEMS FROM COMING INTO THE AREA UNTIL LATE IN THE
MONTH. THIS BROUGHT SOME WARM TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE
AREA...ALTHOUGH NO RECORDS WERE SET. THERE WAS ALSO A SOUTHERLY
SURGE OF STRATUS...A PATTERN TYPICALLY JUST SEEN IN THE SUMMER TIME.
FINALLY...AFTER NEARLY TWO WEEKS OF ALMOST NO RAIN ANOTHER SYSTEM
MOVED INTO THE AREA. THIS SYSTEM WAS FROM THE NORTH AND BROUGHT SOME
LIGHT RAIN AND COOLER TEMPERATURES TO THE AREA. OVERALL THE TREND OF
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES CONTINUED WITH TEMPERATURES ONE TO TWO
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. RAINFALL WAS MUCH CLOSER TO NORMAL THAN
LAST MONTH...ONLY SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL THIS MONTH.
