Mild January goes on

The first 20 days of January haven’t been exceptionally warm but they have been persistently warm. 17 of the first 20 days have had an average temperature above normal. This has lead to an average daily temperature of 24.1°, over 9° above average.

Through the first 19 days of January, that mild start is good for the 5th warmest start to January out at Rochester International Airport.

The next week ahead will generally stay mild, mainly do the the overnights with plenty of expected cloud cover. This will mean it’s more favorable to close the month in a top status overall for warmest Januarys on record.
