January, 2019
January was a wild month.  The month started with a strong cold from producing 64 mph wind gusts on January 1.  A strong storm produced 12" + snowfalls across Central New York on Saturday January 18 and Sunday January 19.  In the wake of the storm, a polar vortex developed over the upper Midwest with actual air temperatures of -30 to -35 and -60 degree wind chills measured in Chicago and Minneapolis.  Here in Central New York, the polar vortex lasted for three days from January 30 through February 1.  Heavy lake snow hammered the Watertown area with 3 feet of snow reported, 20" of that falling in a seven-hour period. The Syracuse area reported five nights with temperatures below 0.  For the month, the average temperature was 21.4 or 2.2 degrees colder than normal.  Readings ranged from 50 degrees on January 1 to -7 on January 21.  Rainfall and melted snow came in at 3.25" or about 0.75" more than usual.  The monthly snow total was 33 inches.
