Temperatures were like a roller-coaster this winter but overall the winter was near the long-term average.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reviewed the winter temperatures and determined it was .5° above normal this year.  Temperatures were below normal across the Upper Midwest and Plains while warmer than normal conditions were felt along the Gulf Coast and Southwest.  The winter across eastern North Carolina was fairly typical, except for the lack of rainfall.  Rainfall averaged only about 60% of normal while snowfall was about normal with 4 to 6 inches reported across most of the area.  Local temperatures were about as close to normal as you can get.  The period of December through February average was 44.87° or only .04° above the long-term average of 44.83°.  So far in March we've seen more rainfall with temperatures averaging about 2° below normal I'll give an update on March at the beginning of April.
