...ALL-TIME COLDEST MONTH IMMINENT AT BANGOR...

THIS FEBRUARY WILL END UP AS THE COLDEST MONTH EVER OBSERVED AT
BANGOR. THROUGH FEBRUARY 24TH THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE AT BANGOR
OF 5.7 DEGREES WAS 14.5 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. BASED ON OUR
FORECAST TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH...WE PROJECT
THAT THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WILL BE NEAR 6.4 DEGREES.
THIS WOULD BREAK THE ALL-TIME RECORD FOR NOT ONLY THE COLDEST
FEBRUARY...BUT ALSO THE COLDEST MONTH EVER OBSERVED AT BANGOR BY
ABOUT 2 DEGREES.

HERE ARE THE TOP 5 COLDEST MONTHS ON RECORD AT BANGOR WITH THEIR
AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURES:

1. JANUARY 1994 8.4F

3. JANUARY 1982 9.8F

5. JANUARY 2009 10.1F

PRIOR TO THIS FEBRUARY...THE COLDEST FEBRUARY ON RECORD WAS IN
1993 WITH AN AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE OF 11.3F...SO BANGOR WILL
SHATTER ITS COLDEST FEBRUARY ON RECORD BY ABOUT 5 DEGREES. RECORDS

AT CARIBOU...THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE SO FAR THIS MONTH OF 2.0 DEGREES
IS 11.4 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. BASED ON OUR FORECAST TEMPERATURES

TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WILL BE NEAR 2.5 DEGREES. THIS WOULD
MAKE IT THE COLDEST FEBRUARY ON RECORD AT CARIBOU. PRIOR TO THIS
YEAR THE COLDEST FEBRUARY WAS IN 1993 WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE
OF 4.1 DEGREES. IT WOULD ALSO TIE FOR THE 3RD COLDEST MONTH OF
