YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Valley can say goodbye to yet another winter.
It was a season for the record books. But, Old Man Winter was nowhere to be seen late last year.
The first 15 days of December had no measurable snow recorded at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport in Vienna. It was fairly warm, with average temperatures right around 41 degrees.
January saw the return of snow. A little over 29 inches of snow fell during the month.
No record lows were broken during the first full month of winter, although slick roads caused multiple accidents.
The focus shifted to Arctic cold air in February. The coldest low of the season occurred on Feb. 20 at 16-degrees below zero.
A total of eight record lows were shattered in February. The month became the coldest February on record, with an average temperature of a little over 13 degrees. It was also the second coldest month ever recorded.
Two more record lows were shattered during the start of March, making it 10 record lows in total for the season. Warmer air then returned the next few weeks. The warmest high temperature of the entire season was recorded on March 16 at 62 degrees.
