NEW YEAR'S DAY

 

 

 

THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED ON NEW YEAR'S DAY WAS 60 DEGREES IN 1985.  THE LOWEST THE MERCURY HAS EVER DROPPED TO IS -8 IN 1970.  NORMALLY, THE HIGH TEMPERATURE AVERAGES 34 DEGREES AND THE LOW ABOUT 19.

 

THERE IS ALMOST AN 81 PERCENT CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION OF A TRACE OR MORE, THOUGH NOT NECESSARILY SNOW.  THE MOST PRECIPITATION EVER ON NEW YEAR'S DAY FELL IN 1964 WHEN .78 INCHES WAS RECORDED.  THE MOST SNOW FELL IN 1964 TOTALING 7.9 INCHES.  REDUCED VISIBILITIES AND BLOWING SNOW WERE NOT A PROBLEM HOWEVER AS WIND SPEEDS WERE RELATIVELY LOW.
