2013-2014 winter temps through January

Yeah, it's been a bit cold so far this winter

2013-2014 winter temps through January small

Don't squint -- see it in large format.

There have been a few stretches this winter that have felt, for lack of a better phrase, really @##$%^ cold. But have they really been that cold? Or have the last few winters left unaccustomed to Jack Frost's chilly embrace.

Curious, we charted the temperature data for November through January. Here's the resulting graph in large format.

Or, looking at differently:

+ The mean temperature for this November was 2.5 degrees colder than the normal mean.

+ The mean temperature for this December was .9 degrees colder than the normal mean.

+ The mean temperature for this January was 2.9 degrees colder than the normal mean.

So, yeah, this winter has been a bit colder than typical, so far. And a few of the lows have dipped near the record low marks. (Though we've had a few high highs, too.)

And as far as snow goes, this winter (37.1 inches) is about 3 inches ahead of the typical total through the end of January (34.1 inches).

All numbers via National Weather Service. Normals are the 30-year averages, 1981-2010.

Hooray, we are already past the lowest mean temperatures!
The trend up should start around January 28th.
(Although it doesn't look like it this year).

... I'm not saying I don't want this area developed, I do. I just want it done the right way and frankly I don't care if that means there's a big gaping hole at that corner for years. The hard part was getting rid of that eyesore of a city hall in the first place and that's done. We already backed out of one deal, there's no shame in backing out of another or putting the sale on hold until all the appropriate questions are asked and answered. ...
