National Climate Report - February 2017
Winter 2016/17 Record Setters
The stations shown on the map below had one of their three warmest, coolest, wettest or driest winters on record this year. Stations with a bold white circle saw values that exceed any previous December-through-February value at the station's current location. The smaller circles indicate year-to-date outcomes that were 2nd or 3rd place among a station's history.
Please note: in order to avoid many overlapping or crowded dots in a region, a subset of only about 200 stations across the United States were considered. There are many stations having "top three" or "bottom three" winters that are not depicted here.
