February was wet and very cold with the last three days remaining below freezing all day. The lowest temperature was -4.4° on the 28th when the average temperature for the day was -3.3°. We've had a weather station since the year 2000 and this was the coldest February we've recorded. The average temperature was only 2.8°; the February average for the last 17 years is 5.1° and last year the average was 6.7°. The highest temperature was 10.1° on the 15th. We had 50mm of rain which is well above the 36mm average for the month.
