THE MONTH STARTED OFF ON A COLD NOTE.  WITH FRESH SNOW ON THE GROUND
AND CLEARING SKIES, NIGHTTIME LOWS DROPPED TO AROUND ZERO WITH
DAYTIME HIGHS IN THE TEENS AND LOWER 20S.  BUT THIS WAS QUICKLY
REPLACED WITH MILDER AND MOISTER AIR MASSES BY THE 4TH.  A
WIDESPREAD 4-7 INCHES OF SNOW FELL ACROSS THE REGION ON THE 4TH.  A
MORE SIGNIFICANT STORM ARRIVED ON THE 12TH WITH 5 TO 12 INCHES OF
SNOW IN THE LEAVENWORTH AREA.  THE 18TH SAW MORE SNOW FOR THE AREA
WITH MOST FOLKS PICKING UP 2 TO 7 INCHES.  DESPITE ALL OF THE SNOW,
TEMPERATURES WERE ACTUALLY MILDER THAN NORMAL.  DAYTIME READINGS
CONSISTENTLY MADE IT ABOVE FREEZING EACH DAY AND NIGHTTIME LOWS
WEREN`T ALL THAT COLD. THERE WAS VERY LITTLE WIND DURING THE ENTIRE
MONTH AS THE STORM SYSTEMS WERE RATHER WEAK.


THE ONLY RECORD AT WENATCHEE FOR THE MONTH OCCURRED ON THE 19TH,WHEN
0.43 INCHES OF LIQUID FELL, ECLIPSING THE OLD RECORD OF 0.24".  THE
13.1 INCHES OF SNOW THAT FELL AT WENATCHEE IS THE SNOWIEST JANUARY
SINCE 1998, WHICH WAS ALSO A STRONG EL NINO WINTER.
