After a historic Arctic blast just a few days before Christmas that brought powerful winds and sub-zero temperatures, January and February were characterized by warm and wet weather with a significant lack of snow. Tornadoes struck on January 12 and heavy rains led to occasional flooding in both January and February. January was one of our warmest on record, and February was even warmer...leading to one of the region's warmest winters on record.
