The National Weather Service Office in Lincoln has provided a weather summary for the month of February. Overall, the month averaged two to four degrees above normal. Chris Miller, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Lincoln, told Regional Radio News the most significant weather event was last Wednesday when central Illinois was impacted by a storm system that brought blizzard-like conditions.
Another weather event occurred on Valentine’s Day when the region received two to four inches of snowfall. Since March just started, Miller says it is known as a transition month, as it’s a blend of cold and warm days, along with snow and thunderstorms.
The first official day of spring is March 20. To view the February weather summary, go to weather.gov/lincoln.
