Sixty One Days and Counting

The last time the summit saw a temperature above 32°F was 61 days ago, back on 1/04/2015. The average temperature since then is 1°F below zero. Within that 61 day span there was a 5 day block where temperatures didn’t rise above zero! Compared to past winters 61 days isn’t that bad. In the winter of 1960 temperatures remained below freezing for 106 days, lasting from 12/14/1959 till 3/28/1960. The 5 days of sub-zero temperatures, this year is less than half of the 12 days’ worth of sub-zero temperatures seen in the winter of 1961. This has been a cold winter; although the past has shown us it could have been much worse. With the official start of spring only 13 days away, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

P.S. Don’t forget to start set your clocks ahead for day lights saving tonight!
