Warm winter (but not the warmest)

Usually we count the number of cold days ...

We get each winter.

This chart shows the percentage of days winter days (i.e. Dec-Feb) in which daytime temperatures in Naples rose at or above 80 degrees.  Can you see the cold spell from a couple years back and the warm run of winters in the early 70s?

This winter was just the opposite:

It was the warm days, not the cool nights, that were adding up.


In total, Naples had fifty four days rise to or above 80 degrees between the three core months of winter, or around 60 percent of the days, The long-term average is forty such days.
