THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY ON ANNETTE ISLAND WAS A MUCH WARMER THAN USUAL ONE
ALONG WITH BEING JUST SLIGHTLY DRIER, JUST AN IMPERCEPTIBLE AMOUNT FROM
THE NORMAL MONTHLY RAINFALL. WITH 20 DAYS OF RAIN SOUNDING A LOT, HOWEVER
WAS A BREAK COMPARED TO THE LAST TWO MONTHS OF 26 DAYS EACH. THE
INTERESTING FACT WAS THAT ONLY 6 DAYS OUT OF THE MONTH RECEIVED 1/2 INCH
OR MORE OF RAIN. THE REST OF THE DAYS HAD REALLY AN INSIGNIFICANT AMOUNT,
SO IT PRESUMABLY DIDN`T FEEL LIKE A WET MONTH.  THE TOTAL RAINFALL WAS
ABOUT AN INCH LESS THAN THE AVERAGE 7.3 INCHES. FURTHERMORE, A SNOWFALL
AMOUNT OF 2.3 INCHES WAS NOTABLY LESS THAN THE NORMAL 7.2 INCHES AND
ESPECIALLY FROM LAST YEARS 15 INCHES! THE AMOUNT OF SNOW THAT FELL HERE
WAS MAINLY FROM THE FIRST 2 DAYS OF THE MONTH AND FROM THE WINTER STORM ON
THE 6TH-7TH THAT UNLOADED A LOT OF SNOW EVERYWHERE ELSE BUT HERE. LITTLE
TO NO SNOW FALLS HERE ON AVERAGE ONCE EVERY 3 YEARS WITH A RECORD OF 0, NO
SNOW, IN 1997.

ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF THINGS, THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 3.5F HIGHER THAN
THE AVERAGE 37.7F ALONG WITH AN AVERAGE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE BEING 4.5F
HIGHER THAN THE TYPICAL 42.7F.  WE ALSO BROKE A RECORD FOR HIGHEST
TEMPERATURE FOR THE 17TH WHICH WAS 53F. FURTHERMORE, WE WERE TIED FOR 3RD
HIGHEST AVERAGE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE AND 6TH PLACE FOR AVERAGE TEMPERATURE ON
RECORD.

THE CHILLY SIDE OF THINGS WERE NOT TOO BAD, MOSTLY THANKS TO THE WARMER
TEMPERATURES.  THE COLDEST IT FELL TO WAS 27F WHICH IS 8F HIGHER THAN
NORMAL. COMPARED TO LAST MONTHS LOW OF 10F WE WERE 17F HIGHER. THE AVERAGE
MINIMUM TEMPERATURE OF 35.1F WAS 2.4F LOWER THAN NORMAL AND 11F LOWER THAN
LAST YEAR.  LASTLY, WINDS WERE AROUND NORMAL WITH THE AVERAGE WIND SPEED
BEING 5.8MPH COMPARED TO THE 7.1MPH NORM AND PEAK WINDS AVERAGING 23.9MPH
COMPARED TO THE 21.4MPH NORM.  THE FIRST 2 WEEKS WERE A LITTLE BREEZY
HOWEVER, THE LAST 2 WEEKS WERE RELATIVELY CALMER WHICH EVENED US OUT TO A
NORMAL MONTH.  THE HIGHEST WIND SPEED RECORDED FOR THIS MONTH WAS 43MPH ON
THE 11TH, NOTHING EXTRA-ODINARY, IT DIDNT EVEN MAKE TOP 50 ON THE RECORD
ALL-TIME HIGH LIST.
