REMARKS...

THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH BROUGHT THE MOST INTERESTING CONDITIONS.
PERIODS OF FREEZING RAIN AND FREEZING DRIZZLE FROM JANUARY 13 TO 15
LEAD TO SOME TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS...FOLLOWED BY OVER HALF A INCH OF
RAIN ON THE 16TH. THE PRECIPITATION ON THE 16TH WAS NEARLY HALF OF
THE MONTHS TOTAL. FOGGY AND DRIZZLY CONDITIONS DOMINATED JANUARY 18
THROUGH 21 THOUGH BELOW FREEZING TEMPERATURES WERE RARE.
