COMPILED BY MISS
In response to the many requests
Hhe following interesting weather
statistics have been compiled by
Miss Gertrude Harbison, coopera
tive observer, of the U. S. weather
Station three miles south of High
lands : .
The records for the winter just
past show that not only. have there
been many rainy days, but the pre
, cipitation has been excessive, as
well. The rainfall for January was
8.19 inches, over an inch' above the
normal amount, while the rainfall
for February was 15.33 inches, over
8 inches above the normal precipi
tation for this month, and by far
the heaviest rainfall for any Feb,-)
ruary on record. The rainfall for
the first half of March has been
approximately 5 inches. The pre
cipitation for December was below
normal, but there was excessive
rainfall during November, following
an extremely dry October.
' The mild, pleasant weather which
prevailed throughout the fall con
tinued for the first three weeks of
November. On Thanksgiving Day
(November 24) there was a sudden
change to colder, and on the morn
ing of November 25, the mercury
had dropped to 12 degrees. The
minimum temperatures for the three
following mornings were 18, 16, and
11 degrees respectively.
The average monthly tempera
tures for both December and Jan
uary were close to normal with no
extremely cold weather and very
little snow. There was no snow in
February, and the average tempera
ture was above normal throughout
the month with the exception of a
cold wave beginning on the 22nd,
when the temperature dropped to
11 degrees. The minimum tempera
ture for the 23rd was 3 degrees
above zero, the lowest temperature
for the winter. As the weather
station is located at an altitude of
500 feet lower than Highlands,
there is a difference of approxi
mately 4 degrees in temperature, so
that zero or sub-zero weather was
undoubtedly experienced in High
lands during this cold .spell.
