Record Cold Winter

February 3, 2014, 5:25 PM by Scot Mundt

Record Cold Winter

There's just one month left to meteorological winter and then it's on to spring.  If things don't warm up soon, this could be one winter for the record books. 

If you average the highs and lows so far this winter in Sioux Falls, you get 12.36 degrees.  That means we are on track to crack the top ten for coldest winters on record.

For us to stay in the top ten, we'll have to have an average total temperature for the day just under 13 degrees for the rest of the month.  That's like having highs just under 26 degrees and lows at zero, which seems achievable.

But when you look at the climate data, our average temperature for the rest of the month is just under 22 degrees.  That's like having a high of 44 and a low of zero each day for the rest of the month. 

That's a far cry from what we've seen this winter.
