(Winter) Hot Streak!

Feb. 20, 2017: Is it Spring yet? Certainly feels like it! We set a few records this afternoon, and look to add a few more later this week.

Monday marked 4 days in a row in the upper 60’s; each day set a new record for warmest temperature on that calendar date.

Temperatures were also very close to tying the warmest February temperature on record. The warmest every for February was set at 70° back on Feb. 25, 2000.

We also broke a nearly 90-year-old record for longest stretch in the 60’s in a row in the winter! We haven’t had a warm stretch like this on record. We could break another record (stretch of 50° or warmer in a row) later this week with the warmth sticking around.

Head’s up: we do have “reality” setting back in by this weekend! The 30’s return as cold air swoops in, getting us back to average after a long stretch of very warm weather.
