In Chester County PA we finished with an average temperature of 53.4 degrees this was our 32nd warmest year in the 125 year Coop data set. However, it also marked a cooling trend with our 3rd straight year with lower temps than the previous year. As we all know it was the wettest year on record for the County with 79.12" of precipitation recorded which is 30.24" above our normal melted equivalent precipitation of 48.97". This broke the old annual record of 75.12" set back in 1996. Snow wise for the year we ended with 54.1" of snow...our 16th snowiest year behind the snowiest year with 82.1" recorded back in 1899. For the snow season of 2017/18 we finished with 56.0" of snow thanks to our snowiest March on record when 30.6" fell - that 56.0" seasonal snow was good for the 14th snowiest season...with the all-time snow season being the 95.0" that fell in 1898/99. We experienced 4 days that exceeded the 90 degree mark our normal 90+ days are 5 during a typical summer season. The coldest reading was the 0.8 degrees above zero on January 7th.
