How Mild Was January 2020 In The Twin Ports? This Graphic Breaks It Down
Winter is definitely not over yet, but aside from some heavy snow early in the season, it really hasn't been too crazy of a winter. January is traditionally one of the coldest months of the year, and while we saw below normal days in Duluth, the National Weather Service reports that a vast majority of the first month of 2020 saw above normal temperatures.
Of the 31 days in January, 22 of those days saw a temperature at least 1 degree above normal. While those minor temperature variances of a couple degrees from normal aren't necessarily super impressive, a total of 8 days saw temperatures 10 or more degrees above normal temperatures. What is "normal" for January? Through much of the month, it is somewhere between 18 and 20 degrees for a daytime high.
Here's a full breakdown of the variances from "normal" temperatures in January:
- Days with above normal temperatures: 22
- Days 10+ degrees warmer than normal: 8
- Days @ normal temperatures: 4
- Days below normal temperatures: 5
