We’re already into February, which means only one month to go until spring begins in March.
Here’s a quick recap of the month of January. For Fargo, January 2015 ended up
6.7 degrees above normal, which ranks it as the 12th warmest on record since 1881. The warmest temperature was 46 degrees on Jan. 23, and the coldest temperature was minus 17 on Jan. 12.
There was a stretch of below-normal temperatures beginning on Jan. 4 and ending on the 13th.
The rest of the month was above average. The month was also fairly dry, with only 0.40 inch of liquid precipitation, which is
0.30 inch below normal. Snowfall was also low, with a total of only 3 inches for the entire month.
Going into February, it does look like this abnormally dry weather will continue, but there are chances for snow during the next week or so.
