Wettest winter on record for the US! 2nd wettest Feb ever: Cold and snow records tumble: Montana 28 deg F below normal 10 deg colder than old record

Just 66 days into 2019 and it is already the year of record-breaking weather,  NOAA released its monthly national weather update and once again, 2019 has continued the record-breaking trend.

The U.S. has recorded its wettest winter ever, capped by a cooler, wetter February 2019.
A fixed jet stream above the Atlantic is causing record cold, snow and rain in the US (but has caused record warm in most of Europe).

After a steady march of snow and rain storms across the country between December 2018 and the end of February 2019, it’s no surprise that the contiguous U.S. has marked its wettest winter on record.

The wet weather last month also made February 2019 the second wettest February on record.

Here are more highlights from NOAA’s latest monthly U.S. climate report:

Climate by the numbers

February 2019
The average temperature during February across the contiguous U.S. was 32.0 degrees F (1.8 degrees below average), which put it among the coolest third of the 125-year record for February. However, the U.S. Southeast experienced much-above-average temperatures, with Florida having its second-hottest February on record.

The average precipitation for February was 3.22 inches (1.09 inches above average), making it the second wettest February on record. Across the U.S., 19 states had a top-10 wettest February, with Tennessee having its wettest February on record.

Winter | December 2018–February 2019
The total U.S. winter precipitation was 9.01 inches (2.22 inches above average), which made it the wettest winter on record, beating the winter of 1997-98 by 0.02 of an inch. Much of the western U.S. received above-average precipitation, while regions in the Great Lakes, Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys, and High Plains experienced much-above average and record precipitation.

The winter temperature was 33.4 degrees F (1.2 degrees above average), ranking it among the hottest third of winters on record, with warmer-than-average temperatures across the Deep South, the Southeast and parts of New England.

Other notable highlights
Shivering temperatures: In February, below-average to much-below-average temperatures were tallied from the West Coast to the Great Lakes. For example, the average February temperature for Great Falls, Montana, was nearly 28 degrees F below normal — more than 10 degrees colder than the previous record.

Record snowfalls: Several cities had record snowfall in February, including Seattle (20.2 inches); Pendleton, Oregon (32.5 inches); Minneapolis (39.0 inches); Rochester, Minnesota (40.0 inches); and Eau Claire, Wisconsin (53.7 inches).

Drought improvement: At February’s end, the U.S. Drought Monitor showed 11.9 per cent of the contiguous U.S. to be in a drought, down from 16.5 per cent at the end of January.

  1. This is all hogwash because the coldest temps are from geoengineering. If that wasn't in play then all places on earth would have hottest temps in all seasons.
    Why are they geoengineering? To cool down surface temps masking the warming and fooling populations as to the actual dire state of the global warming. There are several agendas behind it, but masking the heat is the main one. This is not so hard to do. On robinwesternra's site yesterday he had an excellent video showing us just how easy it is to make cold, snow and ice. Ice nucleating chemicals, aka, endothermic reactions by two chemicals. Its chemistry/science, math! Barium (something) and ammonia (something). Two solids that when they come in contact with each other turn endothermic and freeze moisture in minutes. Endothermic pulls the heat out of the molecule and freezes.
    Why so surprised or doubtful? We have medical treatments that are chemicals that freeze cancer cells until they fall away, it is also used to remove warts. Freezing chemicals have existed for decades. Colorado has been making snow by use of this same chemical freezing since 1971. Legally! Other ski resorts do it as well, a known fact. So, yes, they can make snow and freeze the weather now globally. Just put those chems in gigantic tanks, load on to planes equipped with spray nozzles and bingo, spray the atmosohere- freezing cloud moisture and its a Pilar vortex, because chemical freezing is severe freezing to the point of creating a freeze burn. And it can happen at temps above the natural freezing temp of 0c/32f. This is why some weather events see snow above freezing. Then there is ionosphere heaters coupled with microwave transmission frequencies that create high pressure ridges of dry heat. Those are used to bend jet streams and make walls to block/steer systems. On NASA worldview it is quite visible how bent and split up the global jet streams are from this science. There is no sea ice in north pole area waters, it did all go away a couple years ago. Geoengineering also uses chemical ice nucleating on the surface of the arctic ocean to make a slushy ice replacing what used to be. That too can be seen in NASA WV satellite images. Looks like a chemical spill because it is! One of the weather satellites is NOAA! Can't trust them. They report the temps they created and don't tell you why it is as it is happening. They are screwing with the magnetic energy in the magnetosphere. Yes Gary, Satan is behind it to poison all life! Making those involved rich and powerful as that is his way to trick mankind. What else you want to know my friend!?
