February holds the wildest temperature swings. From the all-time low temperature of 42 below on February 9, 1899 to record warmth of 70 degrees achieved three times in the month. That's a swing of 113 degrees, the largest spread from a record high to a record cold temperature in a month.
Temperatures will swing the other way this weekend and next week. Some areas of KELOLAND will easily get to the 40s and 50s. It could be a swing of 70 or more degrees from experiencing the teens and 20s below for overnight lows earlier this month.
There are indications that the second half of February is showing warmer than average temperatures. While there will still be hits of cold air, they just won't be as prolonged.
