The weather straightened out behind the blizzard with not a snowflake nor raindrop recorded for the remainder of the month. Sunshine became abundant and temperatures rose after a short 2-day cold spell behind the storm. They remained at or above seasonal for the remainder of the month. All of a sudden, after being hit one by one by clipper systems for most of the winter, we were now experiencing relatively pleasant conditions with melting snow on concrete surfaces. This made for quite the slippery mess when the water and slush on roadways froze during the night. However, this is a challenge we must face every year as the sun gets stronger.
In the end, the airport did not reach or exceed the freezing mark this February. This is actually unusual considering that the normal for February is 5 days of temperatures at or above zero (1981-2010 normal).
