Climatologist: Recent Winter “Once in a Lifetime”
UNDATED — A state climatologist says we just completed a winter of a lifetime, but not for cold and snow.
Mark Seely says the heart of winter, December, January and February finished in the top 5% of warmest winters all-time historically. He says that means it may be a “once in a lifetime” winter for many of us.
Seely says 75-80% of days over those three months had above average temperatures. But, he says it’s unclear what the mild winter will mean for us this summer.
