Here are the two records that we could potentially break:
- Tuesday...92 set in 1942
- Wednesday...94 set in 1929
If you don't like the heat, you will have to be patient. It appears that this current weather pattern will break down by the end of the month. The North Atlantic Oscillation is a great index to spot long range trends. Whenever NAO is negative, temperatures will remain generally below normal, which explains our bitterly cold February. If NAO is positive, then temps will be above average, like what we've seen for the past couple weeks. The latest data continues to show NAO diving below zero by the end of this month, so get ready for a bumpy ride!

El Nino was a major factor for these impressive snow amounts. The southern stream was active all winter, providing plentiful moisture.
NAO was also a big player. It was negative for the majority of winter, which brought us cold air from the north. It was a perfect scenario for a big snow storms!
