Warm Winter Thus Far

Eastern North Carolina is experiencing a mild winter thus far. A review of the data reveals that temperatures have averaged 4.3 degrees above the long-term averages for the Greenville/Washington area from December 1 through January 14. Temperatures last winter were generally on the mild side in December and January before turning much colder in February. It will be interesting to see if mother nature tries to balance out these warm temperatures with a few cold snaps before the winter is over.

Dry conditions have also continued since December 1 with most areas receiving only about 60% of normal. The Greenville/Washington area has had about 3 inches over the past 45 days. In a normal year about 5 inches of rain would have fallen in that same time period.
