December 2020 Summary

 A warm December with average precipitation

With the only cold streak lasting just a few days in the middle of the month, it is not surprising that overall temperature was 1.7 degrees warmer than average.  This now makes 6 of the last 7 Decembers that have been warmer than average 

There wasn’t much precipitation in the first 3 weeks of the month, but a wet last week put the total of 64.4 mm close to the average of 71.2 mm.

December saw 44.5 cm of snow, a little more than the average of 37.2 cm for the month.
