Looking At The Long Range Forecast on the Last Day of February

weather folklore

Oh my, Here we are at the last day of February. That means it's time to take a look at 
the Long Range Forecast.
On February 2, the weather in Stuart had turned to clouds and drizzle with the temperatures topping out at 44 degrees. Around here we have had some interesting weather. We have had rain, sleet, snow, and very sunny but blustery days. There where days that we experienced some or even all of these in the same day. 

Let's take a look at what has been going on here:
  • Out of 28 day 19 of them had no rain or precipitation. Doesn't that seem hard to believe? I went back and recounted what I had recorded and it's true!
  • Three of the days of the month started out with a lot of rain and then cleared out to offer a bright sunshiny day.
  • We only received snow/sleet on three days but one of those day more than a foot of snow and then grew into even more accumulation.
  • Our average temperature stayed between 28- 46 degrees. A few days were extremely cold -10 degrees and some of the highs reached 74 degrees.
What do you think?
Do you feel there was accuracy?

I think February 2 was kinda a wishy-washy kind of day.
I also think the month was the same way.

I know many folks have experienced extremely turbulent weather 
feel free to share your experiences.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit.



  1. Hi Lynn,

    Let's hope that March brings in warmer temps, sunnier days and blooming pretties; after all spring officially arrives on the 20th!!

    Have a wonderful month!


    1. I am looking forward to Spring and I have surely been seeing signs of it approaching. I've seen those green spikes and some crocus blooms but the sign that really gives me the Spring feeling is all robins that are everywhere.

      Be Blessed!
