-Night-time temperatures were particularly warm. January's average low is 4 F, but most nights this January didn't go below 25 F.
-Most snow-cover was gone by mid-February, leading to early greenery.
-February was the 3rd warmest on record, and March was the warmest.
-Daily record high temperatures were set in each month November – April.
-No record lows were set this winter.
-The first and last flakes of the year occured quite early and late, respectively. Snowfall season wasn't intense, but it was long!
