THE MONTH STARTED OFF ON A COLD NOTE.  WITH FRESH SNOW ON THE GROUND
AND CLEARING SKIES, NIGHTTIME LOWS DROPPED INTO THE TEENS WITH HIGHS
IN THE 20S. BUT THIS WAS QUICKLY REPLACED WITH MILDER AND MOISTER
AIR MASSES BY THE 4TH. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES FOR THE REST OF THE
MONTH CONSISTENTLY MADE IT ABOVE FREEZING EACH DAY AND NIGHTTIME
LOWS WEREN`T ALL THAT COLD. WEAK WEATHER SYSTEMS MOVED THROUGH THE
AREA ON A REGULAR BASIS, BRINGING RAIN OR WET SNOW JUST ABOUT EVERY
DAY. LEWISTON AIRPORT REPORTED AT LEAST A TRACE OF RAIN OR SNOW ON
21 OF THE 31 DAYS IN THE MONTH. THE MILD TEMPERATURES MEANT THAT
NEARLY ALL OF THE PRECIPITATION WAS IN THE FORM OF RAIN. BUT SOME
SNOW DID FALL. GIFFORD RECIEVED 2 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE 13TH AND
MOSCOW PICKED UP AN INCH OF SNOW ON THE 16TH. BY THE END OF THE
MONTH, TEMPERATURES WERE VERY MILD WITH READINGS INTO THE UPPER 40S
TO MID 50S.  THE STRONGEST WINDS OF THE MONTH OCCURRED ON THE 29TH A
A SMALL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVED ACROSS THE PALOUSE, BRINGING WIND
GUSTS OF 50 MPH TO GENESEE AND 55 MPH TO THORTON.
