December Closing Out Mild.

We are nearly 1/3rd of the way through Meteorological Winter (the months of December, January, February) and thus far we’ve escaped without much wintry weather to speak of. We’ve seen very little in the way of frozen precipitation and temperatures have been well above average.

In fact, the month will go down as a top 10 warmest December across a good chunk of Southern New England (in some cases, top 5). Here on the Cape, the month of December is running about 3F above the long-term average. It’s also been quite dry (despite the dreary conditions) with just .39″ of precipitation recorded month-to-date at Hyannis.

Today and tomorrow will continue the theme of late – above average temperatures – ensuring December 2021 is remembered as a mild and virtually snowless month.
