I went through my records for February since 2006. In terms of temperatures, this past February has been pretty average. Not overly warm (like 2010) and not overly cold (like 2011). The mean temperature was 3.3C (2010=5.3C 2011=1.9C)

It also seems to be about average for my station for rain. 146mm of rain fell, about the same as 2006/2007 (both 132mm), much less wet than 2010 (197mm) and 2011 (180mm).

It was a pretty calm month too in terms of wind. The high wind was only 45kph.

You can check out all the stats from my station here.

March is looking a little more interesting than February. But that should be expected for Spring time.

We’re going to get rain on and off all weekend with most of it coming tonight and Sunday night. There is supposed to be some chance at a wind event on Monday. You can see the 50knot flags off the island on the 96hr short.

And I’m not sure what Environment Canada is thinking with the Snow in the forecast… I’ll believe it when I see it! 🙂
