R.I. snowed under in record-setting February

“Last month was the snowiest February on record, with 31.8 inches falling in just 28 days, according to the National Weather Service. That was ridiculously close to 2 feet — 23.3 inches to be exact — more than the usual snowfall in February.  For December through February, the total snowfall at T.F. Green Airport was 58.3 inches, the third-snowiest winter season on record.” 

MORE STATS:

— 25.6 inches of snow fell in January, the fifth-snowiest on record.

— The average low temperature for February was 8.5 degrees, more than 15 degrees below normal. The average high was 28.3 degrees, which was 12 degrees below normal.

— Records low temperatures were posted on Feb. 21 (minus 5), and on Feb. 24 (minus 3)

But at least we aren’t in Boston, which had 102 inches on March 1st, and it almost feels as if we are living in the Arctic Circle, but not quite.
