Bergenfield February 2015 Summary

Hi,

 

There was record-breaking cold here in Bergenfield, New Jersey. U.S.A. during the month of February. It was the coldest month in my period of observations which began in 1983. I recorded a mean temperature of 22.1°F ( -5.5°C ), 11.5°F below the long-term mean. The lowest temperature of 1°F ( -17.2°C ) was measured on the 24th and established a new daily record. A maximum temperature of 46°F ( 7.8°C ) was recorded 22nd. The month was consistantly cold. There were no extended periods of mild weather. Every day saw morning lows below the freezing point. In fact, 12 days brought minimum temperatures at or below 10°F ( -14,0°C ). Ice conditions in the Hudson River became serious enough by the third week in February that ferry service between Manhattan Island and New Jersey was disrupted.

The total precipitation of 1.89″ ( 48.0mm ) was well below normal. The greatest daily precipitation 0.97″ ( 24.6mm ) occurred on the 2nd. This event also deposited 6.2″ ( 15.8cm ) of snow. Although the total snowfall for the month was just a little above normal, the continous snowcover gave the landscape a monotonously winter-like appearance.

Ten new daily low records were established. The 5.7″ snowfall on the 2nd broke the old mark. An arctic front pushing through the region resulted in record wind gusts from the NW of 39mph( on the 15th ) and 30 mph ( on the 16th ).

 

This month will be remembered for its relentlessly arctic-like chill.

 

Best wishes,
