Weatherwatch - January/February 2010

Much of the significant damage occurred on January 6–7 and 10–12, when temperatures dipped below 32°F as far south as the Everglades. Monthly temperatures averaged at least 5°F below normal across most of Florida's peninsula, and were also below normal across the remainder of the Southeast. Below-normal temperatures were also noted in much of the upper Midwest, where a very deep snow cover had become established during December and persisted through January.
