Minimal Winter

Posted: 08 Feb 2012 05:54 AM

The featured chart is another illustration of how warm this winter has been. The chart shows the number of days this winter season that the low temperature has been at or below a given temperature threshold. The blue line represents the minimum total for any year prior to this year. The teal line is this winter and it closely hugs or exceeds the previous minimum at some thresholds. The overall minimum temperature has only been 1 degree this year, which would be the warmest on record if it stands for the rest of winter. Our last winter is plotted in red and shows how much different it was than this year.

Good = 14
Bad = 3
