January 2010: Warmest on record

That’s right. We just experienced the warmest January ever recorded.

Even the spring flowers decided it was time to bloom. We passed these two daffodils on our morning walk the other day. “Seattle had a mean temperature in January of 47.0. The old record was 46.55 in January 2006,” Cliff Mass writes in his weather blog. “NOT ONE DAY WAS BELOW NORMAL.” He says that the warm weather was a combination of several factors and that an El Nino-like weather patterns dominated the second half of the month. (Although January was warm, it’s tough to forget July 29, 2009.)
