A Look Back At The Coldest Winters

March 4, 2014, 5:45 PM by Scot Mundt

A Look Back At The Coldest Winters

There's no question this has been a long, cold winter.  But how does it compare with our coldest winters ever?

So far, March has not supplied much relief from our cold temperatures as the numbers have remained below average since the first of the month.  This shouldn't come as a surprise as the winter has been well below average.  Meteorological winter is the months from December through February, and this one has been one for the records books. 

Sioux Falls average temperature during that time was 12.3 degrees, which is cold enough for tenth coldest winters.  The average high during that span was just over 23 degrees while the average low was around a degree and a half.  Sioux Falls had 47 days with lows at or below zero and six days with highs at or above zero.

While it's still colder than average, it is time to look ahead to spring and warmer temps.  The warmer temperatures will be here for the second half of the weekend.
