The average temperature at the WLDS-WEAI Reporting Station was 30.9 degrees last month. That’s one-tenth of a degree colder than January’s average temperature of 31 degrees.
Typically January is Jacksonville’s coldest month.
Despite the anomaly, temperatures were right around average in February. The warmest day of the month was on the 19th when the mercury hit 59 degrees. The coldest temperature occurred on the morning of the 2nd when it was only 4 degrees. (A sign we should’ve known the groundhog was wrong.)
Overall, there was about 2.5 inches of precipitation recorded at the WLDS-WEAI Reporting Station last month. That’s nearly an inch above normal.
We saw just under 7 inches of snow in February. That’s more than two inches above normal. It brings the seasonal total to 12 inches. Normally, we get about 19 inches of the white stuff each winter, and we’re probably not done with the snow yet.
Usually, the city receives a little more than 3 inches of snow in March.
