February 2015 outlook

January 31, 2015

RT   It sure didn’t snow much in January 2015! Only 5.4 inches fell at MSP airport, well below our 30 year average of 12.2 inches. It was a lot snowier in January 2014, when we saw a whopping 22.7 inches of snow in the Twin Cities.

Ten of the first thirteen days in January were cooler than normal in the Twin Cities metro area. Temps rebounded nicely after that, with above normal temperatures during the final eighteen days of the month. Our warmest temperature in the Twin Cities was 45 degrees, on January 26. The coldest reading in January was 11 degrees below zero on the 5th. The average temperature for the month of January was 3.4 degrees above normal in the Twin Cities.

Looking ahead, the February temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows equal chances of above normal and below normal temperatures over eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin:
