Looking Back at a Warm Winter in Central Georgia

Looking Back at a Warm Winter in Central Georgia

March is here!  The 70-degree temperatures and thunderstorms seem fitting for the start of meteorological spring, but we've been no stranger to those conditions over the past few months.  The observations confirm that we just wrapped up a warm winter!

2011-2012 was the seventh warmest winter in Macon since 1948.  That is based on the mean of all highs and lows during meteorological winter (the months of December, January and February).  The mean temperature this winter came out to 51.4 degrees, compared to 48.4 degrees in an average winter.  Here's a rundown of the top ten warmest and coldest winters.
