  Central New York experienced a rare 82-degree temperature swing over the course of 11 days during early February!  Readings dropped to -13 on February 4 only to reach a record-smashing 69 degrees on February 15.  The 69-degree high represents the third warmest February temperature ever recorded here in Syracuse.  The month was mild on the whole, continuing the unseasonably warm winter trend.  The average temperature for Syracuse was 31.6 degrees and 6-degrees warmer than normal.  The arctic blast on February 3 and 4 was short-lived but brutally fierce.  The actual air temperature on top of Mount Washington, New Hampshire dropped to -47 at 4 am on Saturday, February 4 and at the time the winds were howling at 100 mph with gusts reaching 127 mph.  The -109-degree wind chill experienced that morning now stands as the lowest wind chill ever recorded in the United States.  It's hard to fathom how it could get so cold during such a warm winter.  The Great Lakes recorded the least amount of ice cover on record during mid-February.  On February 15, only 6% of the Great Lakes was iced covered. Rain and melted snow amounted to 2.58" which is very close to normal.  We picked up 23" of snow during February, pushing the season's total to 53.6".  Normal accumulated snow at the end of February is 105".  Records for the month:  Record high temperature of 69 degrees measured on February 15th.
