You’ve just experienced one of the
coldest February’s in the history of
Lancaster. The normal average temperature
for February in Lancaster is 22-degrees.
Not this year, according to Meterologist
Tom Stangeland with the National
Weather Service in La Crosse.
Twice the temperature hit -15 in Lancaster
in February, on the 10th and the 11th.
The warmest day was February 19th when
it was 44-degrees.
Stangeland tells us what’s been causing
all the cold air in the Upper Midwest.
You can be thankful for the northwest
flow of cold air today, because it’s pushed
a major storm system with snow and
freezing rain to the south.
While it seems like it snowed constantly
last month, that’s not the case. Lancaster
had just under 11-inches of snow in
February. Normally, the city receives
about 7 1/2 inches.
Warmer weather is expected later this
week with a high near 30 on Thursday.
