New Records Set for Seattle Freeze
If you were feeling the need to bundle up a bit more this season, you were not alone! The Seattle area experienced the coldest winter season since 1984/1985 this year, according to the National Weather Service. There were 21 more nights near or below freezing this year, which corresponded to fewer days with highs above 50, and more days with lows below 35 degrees throughout December, January and February. Rainfall remained average in Seattle, but this past winter was the snowiest since 2008/2009. February was the wettest month on record in 50 years. Does that mean we’re due for the sunniest Summer season? Only time will tell.
