January Galeton Weather

January Galeton Weather

The month of January was like a roller coaster . The month started our warmer than usual, then colder, the once again, a warm spell, then a week of bitter, much below normal temps. After that week we ended up the month with spring like weather with temperatures much above normal. Some nighttime lows were in the 40's and daytime highs near 60. On the 31st we went back to January weather with high winds and much colder. The Alberta clipper has, once again, arrived. After all it is winter and in January we do have a January thaw from time to time and ,of course, January is the coldest winter month.

We received 3.30" of rainfall with 2.20" arriving in the last two days of the month. It was dry up until that time. Snowfall totaled 6.7" with the greatest amount falling on the 16th, 2.5" We had 27 days with one inch or more on the ground. The greatest amount was 9" on the first of the month with the average snow depth of 3.9". We had 6 foggy mornings. It is noteworthy to comment that we had a few days of heavy fog day long. Pine Creek was frozen over west of town, however on the 30th it went out and on the morning of the 31st Pine Creek is very high, perhaps the highest observed in a long time. Last year we had 2.97" of melted precipitation and 10.8" of snow.
