That took a while! After a long stretch of cold weather, our heating bills will get a little relief through the weekend. Highs near 50 will feel balmy during this Frigid February.
I was surprised to read this morning the historic nature of our recent cold weather. Read for yourself from the NWS in Wakefield:
RICHMOND VA CLIMBED TO AT LEAST 45 DEGREES TODAY…FEB 18TH. THIS IS THE WARMEST DAY AT RICHMOND SINCE JAN 28TH. A 20 DAY STRETCH WITH TEMPERATURES REMAINING BELOW 45 DEGREES IS THE 3RD LONGEST SINCE RECORDS BEGAN IN 1897. THE LONGEST WAS A 30 DAY STRETCH THAT ENDED ON FEB 9TH 1966.
