WHILE IT WAS A VERY WARM MONTH, WE MANAGED TO FINISH THE MONTH OUT WITHOUT BREAKING
ANY TEMPERATURES RECORDS. WE DID MANAGE TO GET JUST ABOVE OUR NORMAL VALUES FOR
RAINFALL AND FINISHED WELL BELOW OUR NORMAL VALE OF SNOW FALL. WE HAD TWO
SIGNIFICANT LOWS MOVE THROUGH OUR AREA DURING THE MONTH, ONE AT THE BEGINNING AND
ONE TOWARDS THE END WITH A PEAK WIND OF 44 MPH OUT OF THE SOUTHEAST.
