We are halfway through February here in Illinois. The statewide average temperature through February 14 was 32.2 degrees, 6.2 degrees above normal.
The statewide average precipitation was 0.66 inches, about 86 percent of normal (first map). It has a quiet month for snowfall as well with most areas reporting 2 inches or less (second map). That’s about ten times less than the first 14 days of last February (last map).
