We’re closing in on February now and gaining 2-4 minutes of daylight every day. The higher sun angle is starting to improve our temperatures and the cold snaps we encounter tend to be more short-lived. Our average high for this time of the year is in the low 30s…out of the first 22 days, we were above that 11 times. On February 10th we broke a record by hitting 48 degrees. Another phenomenon that will occur this month…Comet Lulin. It will be closest to the Earth on February 24th and then slowly dim in the days following.
Another reminder that Daylight Saving Time begins on March 8th this year (set your clocks ahead one hour) and ends on November 1st.
Thanks for reading!
