&&
THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY WAS WARMER AND WINDIER THEN USUAL, BECAUSE OF THIS YAKUTAT
WAS WELL UNDER THE MONTHLY AVERAGE WITH SNOWFALL. WHILE WE REPEATEDLY HIT MAX
TEMPERATURES IN THE 40`S WE DID NOT BREAK ANY RECORDS AND ONLY DROPPED BELOW
FREEZING 10 TIMES. THE RAINFALL WAS JUST OVER 10 INCHES WHICH IS ABOUT NORMAL FOR
THIS TIME OF YEAR. WE HAD SEVERAL DAYS WITH THE WINDS ABOVE 30 MPH WITH THE PEAK
WIND HITTING 37 MPH ON THE 24TH.
