A Tale of Two Januarys: 2011 vs. 2012
From Jan. 2011's winter wonderland to Jan. 2012's springlike temperatures.
As we say goodbye to January and roll into February, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at this year's mild month, and compare it to 2011's snow-filled January.
The Boston Globe reported at the end of Jan. 2011 that in the month we accumulated about 38 inches of snow, making it the third snowiest January in Boston on record. This year, however, we've barely surpassed three inches, and when we have, it has been gone within a day or two.
Not counting our freak Snowtober, will our first winter blizzard make its way into town with the start of February?
According to the National Weather Service, probably not this week.
Tomorrow there is a 40 percent chance of precipitation, but with high temperatures forecasted at 53 degrees, we certainly won't be seeing any white stuff.
Wish we were having a white winter, or are you happy with the mild temperatures? Let us know in the comments.
