REMARKS...


PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH WAS RATHER INFREQUENT...WITH MEASURABLE
AMOUNTS FALLING ON ONLY THREE DAYS. ONLY EIGHT OTHER FEBRUARYS ON
RECORD HAD FEWER DAYS. THE AMOUNTS THAT DID FALL ON THESE DAYS WERE
NOT HEAVY BUT ENOUGH TO BRING THE MONTH/S TOTAL TO NEAR THE AVERAGE
OF HISTORIC FEBRUARY TOTALS. IN A SIMILAR FASHION...MEASURABLE
SNOWFALL FOR THE MONTH ONLY OCCURRED ON ONE DAY...BUT THE 2.7 INCHES
THAT FELL ON FEBRUARY 12 WAS ENOUGH TO RANK THIS FEBRUARY NEAR THE
MIDDLE OF HISTORIC VALUES. NORTH WINDS BEHIND THE SYSTEM THAT
PRODUCED THE SNOW BROUGHT WIND CHILL VALUES TO AROUND -10 IN THE
EARLY MORNING HOURS OF FEBRUARY 13 AND 14. A RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE
OF 72 DEGREES OCCURRED ON FEBRUARY 2.
