How does January 2011 stack up?
For lots of us it’s been very cold. For others not so much. And for others still, it’s been downright hot, well, relatively.
Here’s a preliminary look at what’s been going on in a few locales.
Maximum average temperature for the month of January at selected locales
All values in degrees Fahrenheit.
|Locale||Long-term Average||Preliminary Average
for January 2011
O’Hare International Airport
|Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada
|-8.5||11.5||Veritable heat wave|
Jacksonville International Airport
|64.2||60||Brrr … well, sort of|
|New York City
|23||28||Veritable heat wave|
Reagan National Airport
|-35.3||-31||Veritable heat wave|
Those of us on the East Coast have been shivering in our boots, but most of our friends to the north are probably wondering what happened to winter.
