NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Middle Tennessee is wrapping up one of the warmest winters of the last 150 years.
Forecaster Trevor Boucher at the National Weather Service office in Nashville notes the meteorological winter was much warmer and a bit wetter than usual.
December through February averaged 4 degrees above the 30-year norm. Precipitation was 2.5 inches above normal for the period. The coldest reading of the winter was 17 degrees, recorded Feb. 1.
Spring officially arrives March 20, but Boucher says we’ve already turned the meteorological corner.
