Warmest Winter on Record but Frost Tonight Likely
The US National Weather Service released today that “this is the warmest winter on record here in Northwest California.” The average temperature in Eureka this winter has been 52.2 which is .2 higher than the previous record in the winter of 1939-40. Other northwestern areas of California show even greater rises in average temperature. (See photo above.)
However, tonight is expected to be quite chilly. “Low temperatures will drop into the low to mid 30s for coastal areas and will be 32F degrees or less in interior Northwest California valleys,” says the weather site.
