The streak is broken...

We finally broke 40 degrees since January 1.  It has been a long time coming.  While I initially thought we might just get over the 40 degree mark, it looks like we should be well above it today. Here is the 11 AM reading for the state.

Today also marks the 24th day in a row with snow on the ground.  The NWS in Indianapolis has a little write up here.  We are in the top 10.  Looking at the list, there are some very memorable years in that list.

Also, on this day in 2007, the Valentines Day II snowstorm hit much of the US.  Kokomo received 21 inches over three days (2/13-2/15) with 16.4 inches falling on Valentines Day.  That was an amazing storm.

Look for a warm week to melt our snow pack but winter is going to return as early as next week.  Enjoy it while it lasts.
