SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – We’ve experienced some above average temperatures this past winter. On March 9th we made it all the way up to a record breaking 80 degrees.
Our average high temperature for this time of year should be in the mid 40s.
And now according to NOAA, February 2016 was the warmest month on record. The average temperature over land and sea was 2.18 degrees above the 20th century average.
The Climate Prediction Center also just released its spring outlook and they’re calling for much above average temperatures for us here in New England over the next three months.
“You’ve got to take advantage of a winter like this when you have the chance, in a couple of days it will be officially spring so we’ll pray for the good weather to continue,” said Trevor Bennett of Springfield.
As far as precipitation goes we have equal chances of seeing above or below normal precipitation from April through June. Spring officially begins this Sunday at 12:30 a.m.
