It Was the 4th Warmest Winter on Record in Portland Since 1940
Happy March! We are surely but slowly getting closer to warmer weather.
Now I still think it's winter, but if you are a weatherman then winter is over.
Yup, meteorological winter goes December-January-February and the great people at the National Weather Service in Gray have the winter stats for the season.
According to their Twitter page:
"Has it felt like an unusually mild winter this year for Northern New England standards? If so then you are correct! With the end of Meteorological Winter yesterday, Portland has had the 4th warmest winter on record since 1940 with February being the 7th warmest. #mewx #nhwx"
Actually, November was wicked wintery.
