LINCOLN'S BIRTHDAY

 

 

 

LINCOLN'S BIRTHDAY IS THE DAY SET ASIDE TO COMMEMORATE OUR 16TH PRESIDENT.  IN ROCHESTER, THE RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE FOR FEBRUARY 12 WAS REACHED IN 1965 WITH A READING OF 64 DEGREES.  THE LOWEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED WAS MINUS 15 IN 1979.  NORMALLY, THE HIGH TEMPERATURE AVERAGES AROUND 30 DEGREES AND THE LOW ABOUT 14.

 

THERE'S AN 85 PERCENT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION OF A TRACE OR MORE.

 

IN 1944, A SNOW STORM DROPPED 4.6 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE ROCHESTER AIRPORT AND .52 INCH OF PRECIPITATION.  BOTH OF THESE AMOUNTS HOLD THE RECORD ON LINCOLNS BIRTHDAY.
