Weather Talk: Snowy December was also very cold
December 2008 will always be remembered for the record-breaking snowfall. Last month was not only the snowiest December on record, but the snowiest month recorded as well.
Somewhat forgotten with all the snowfall was how bitterly cold much of the month was. December finished with an average temperature of just
5.9 degrees, 6.6 degrees below the monthly average of 12.5 degrees.
