Amazing ICT NWS January Warmth Facts!

Well the it was the warmest January on record in Wichita, and records have been kept since July 1st, 1888. check out these amazing facts from the ICT NWS aricle about the crazy warmth!

High temperatures reached between 60 and 70 degrees on 13 days, and between 50 and 60 degrees on 13 others. The high temperature reached 40 degrees EVERY DAY. January signed off with high temperatures reaching 50 degrees 11 consecutive days from the 21st thru the 31st. From the 24th thru the 31st, the high temperature reached 60 degrees six times during this eight-day period.

Overnight lows remained above freezing 11 times, and dropped below 20 degrees only once, when a low of 17 was recorded on the 21st.

The average temperature for a given calendar day reached or exceeded 50 degrees seven times, including three consecutive days from the 26th thru the 28th. On only eight days did the average temperature fail to reach 40, and NOT ONCE did the average temperature for a given calendar day drop below freezing.
