Winter is over! Well, at least in the weather world of statistics. In meteorology, the year is split into 4 seasons, of equal 3-month lengths. "Winter" consists of the months December, January, and February and is commonly used to keep statistics for the "winter season". (Of course, we know snow and cold weather lasts a bit longer around our region...that data isn't forgotten. That's still considered in the final "cold season" tally).
So, how did we do this "winter"? According to data from the Burlington National Weather Service, the Burlington area finished off the meteorological winter season with the #10 warmest average temperatures on record. Tallying up all the daytime and nighttime temperatures and calculating the overall average temp, the number turns out to be 25.5 degrees.
As for snowfall, we turned out just about "normal". For the 3 month span, the Burlington area received 61.6" of snowfall. In any given season, the average tally is about 58.9". So again, pretty much "normal" for a winter by the numbers in the snow department.
