Weather Data: 2/15/21-2/21/21

Time for my 46th week of weather station data! 

The high temperature of the week occurred on Saturday afternoon of 64.4 F. We had a low temperature of 7.5 F on Monday morning. The dewpoints ranged from 31.5 F to -1.3 F, Tuesday morning and Monday morning, respectively. You can see that the winter storm passed and we had a bit of a warming trend.

There was a 0.01 inch blip of precipitation, but really this was due to melting snow. We did have an additional 0.5 inches of snow overnight (Monday).

The strongest winds and the strongest gust (47.9 mph) occurred on Saturday afternoon, ahead of the next trough.

The high pressure was 30.14 in Hg (~1021 mb) on Sunday night and the lowest pressure was on Tuesday evening, dropping down to 29.50 in Hg (~999 mb). The pressure drops were due to approaching troughs- the Tuesday version being a winter storm, and the Saturday version being a windy day (with winter weather farther north).

It looks like there was sunshine every day last week.

Thank you for reading my post.
