The average temperature for December was in line with our available average compilation, according to our official weather observer, Bob Russell. He said our December average high was 39.7 degrees compared with the 40.9 historical average. Our average low was 20.4 degrees compared with 22.6. He said our frigid last three days of single digits in December pulled us down a little. It was a different story with the snow. “We struggled to get a white Christmas with just a trace of snow but our 6.5 inches on the 28th brought our total to 7.6 inches, well above our historical 4.1 inches,” he observed.
