Winter of 2019-20 Mildest On Record In Tri-State Since …. Three Years Ago

With mild temperatures and very little snowfall in the Tri-state this past winter, it will go down as one of the warmest in history.

In fact, according to Hagerstown’s official weather website, the average temperature for this past  Dec/Jan/Feb was 37.6 degrees, making it the sixth warmest winter since records have been keep, dating back to 1898-99.

In addition, this past winter’s total of 6.0 inches of snow is the third lowest in recorded history, bested only by the winter of 1972-73 when only 3.9 inches of snow fell and in 1938-39 which recorded 5.6 inches for the whole winter.

But if you’re thinking it’s been a long time since we had such a mild winter, that really not the case. You only have to go back three years to the winter of 2016-17 to find one warmer. The average temperature that year was 38.9 degrees, the second warmest of all time.

By contrast, the coldest winter on record occurred in 1917-18 when the average temperature was 23.9 degrees.
