It looks like we’ll ease into meteorological winter with an above average temperature for the month of December greater than 30.5 degrees. The average temperature for the month is 21.2 degrees. That temperature is determined by averaging all of the highs and lows for the month over a series of years. So, it looks like we’ll be “warmer” than average for the month. However, there may be days where the actual temperature for the date may be colder than 30.5 degrees by quite a bit.
The snowfall averages for each month are determined the same way. For December, the average snowfall for the entire month is 13.7 inches. It looks like we’ll be well below that, receiving less than 11.7 inches for the month. The temperature pattern can change quite a bit, with any days above the freezing mark making rain and/or icy mix cut into snow tallies.
The average temperature for January is 22.6 degrees. It looks like the average temperatures for January 2019 will end up being close to that – between 20.6 and 24.6 degrees. Snowfall for January averages 17.9 inches so this winter may bring about snowfall between 15.9" and 19.9" which is about average.
February then looks to be cold. The average temperature for all of February is 25.9 degrees. Our forecast predicts the temperature for the month at or below 23.9 degrees. February average snowfall for the month is 12.2 inches while our forecast calls for a total snowfall at or above 10.2 inches.
Have a great winter!
