Warm and dry 2012

Posted: Updated:

We're just about a week into the new year and we've already had some interesting weather to contend with.

In 2012, tri-staters enjoyed... and suffered through, some huge swings from very hot weather to cold snaps and everything in between.

Here's a snapshot of last year:

Average temperature(each days highs & lows averaged together): 59.7 degrees, 3.3 degrees above average.  This was the third warmest year on record, the warmest spring on record and the 5th warmest winter on record.

Warmest: 107 degrees on June 28th, 29th & July 5th.

Coldest: 12 degrees on January 14th & December 30th.

Rainfall: 33.13 inches, 12.18 inches below our normal of 45.31 inches.

June was the driest June on record in Evansville.

Snowfall: 11.1 inches, .7 inches below normal.

The airport recorded 230 days with fair skies and 46 days with cloudy skies.  The rest were somewhere in between.
