Heading for Coldest December in 6 years

Well with the last 5 Decembers running very warm with departures from Chester County norms as follows:

2011 + 6.2

2012 +5.7

2013 +0.8

2014 +2.6

2015 + 14.0

This December through the 1st 23 days is averaging (0.9) below normal....so highly likely despite a couple warm days in the mix to finish as our coldest December in 6 long years! For those of you that like your holiday season cold.....this year has been a welcome return to those days of old back at the turn of the decade!

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all. I wish you and your families all the best during the holidays and look forward to some interesting weather tracking in the New Year. Thanks to all of you who keep this site purring along - your efforts do not go unnoticed!

Thanks! Paul

Just did a quick analysis of Decembers for the last 11 complete decades since 1900 covering the last 110 years here in Chester County to see how each decade has ranked regarding December temps - ranked coldest to warmest in decade ending: Of interest 2 of the 3 coldest decades have occurred in the last 6 decades or to view from the other side 3 of the 3 warmest have occurred in the last 6 decades

1) 1969 - 31.0

2) 1909 - 32.1

3) 1989 - 32.29

4) 1919 - 32.30

5) 1929 - 32.6

6) 1949 - 32.9

7) 1959 - 33.0

8) 1939 - 33.4

9) 1979 - 33.5

10) 2009 - 34.1

11) 1999 - 35.5
