How cold has it been?


A six degrees below zero reading on Saturday made the 30th day this winter season of zero or below weather according to Clinton area weather observer Jim Blaess.  He says that is the most since there were 31 days in the winter of 1978-79.  He also said it is the 12th most zero or below days since 1892-93 winter season.  

Blaess said that in February there have been no days that have reached ‘average’ temperatures.

Heading into today, Blaess says there has been 39 inches of snow this winter season and that’s the 22nd most snow in a winter season in records since 1887-88 winter season.  He says any snow today could move this winter up the list.
