For the last week it has seemed more like spring than the middle of January. But, the screen capture above says it all…70° at 9am on January 22 just isn’t right.
If this holds for another week, there will be no doubt that this January will be one for the record books here in SE Texas if nowhere else. It almost reminds me of last February except we seem to have missed the cold half of that month.
February 2011 went into the record books as average though. Thanks to half of the month being colder than normal followed by the other half being warmer than normal. So the month with some of the coldest temperatures in history went down as average…Gotta love it. Should it repeat at least we won’t be totally at the mercy of rolling blackouts that don’t roll .
