Recent months have, overall, been warmer and drier than normal. Last month initially brought more of the same but then took a turn toward colder temps and offered up some much-needed snow. What will December hold for us?
The month of December brings with it the official start of winter and oftentimes, colder and snowier weather conditions. It, however, can also offer unseasonably warm temperatures and bone dry conditions. Given our recent mild and dry weather, we are certainly hoping for a change in the coming month.
Overall December’s monthly mean temperature of 31.2 degrees (1991 – 2020 averages) makes it our coldest month. Snow is always on everyone’s mind this time of year but December is only our 3rd snowiest month behind March and November with an average of 8.0 inches of the white stuff.
