...REMARKS...ALTHOUGH IT RAINED ON ALL BUT THREE DAYS DURING THE
MONTH, NO RECORDS WERE SET OTHER THAN THIS BEING THE NINTH WETTEST
FEBRUARY ON RECORD. ALSO, CONTRARY TO ALL THE LOCAL CHATTER ABOUT
FROSTY MORNINGS, HAVING TO SCRAPE CAR WINDOWS, BRINGING TENDER
PLANTS INDOORS, AND "THIS SURE HAS BEEN A COLD MONTH THIS YEAR,"
FEBRUARY ACTUALLY ENDED UP BEING 6/10THS OF A DEGREE WARMER IN
AVERAGE TEMPERATURE. EVEN MORE ODD IS THAT THE AVERAGE MINIMUM
TEMPERATURE WAS A FULL 1.5 DEGREES WARMER THAN NORMAL AND THE
AVERAGE HIGH TEMPERATURE WAS ONLY SLIGHTLY COOLER THAN NORMAL (0.6
DEGREES).
