For the shortest month of the year, the second month of 2011 certainly brought some diverse weather conditions to Plano:

  • A 44mph wind gust on 2/1
  • A wind chill of -5 degrees on 2/1
  • 101 hours 10 minutes continually below freezing (2/1 4:26am – 2/5 9:36am)
  • A low temperature of 12 degrees on 2/2
  • 9 inches total snowfall (2/1, 2/4, 2/9)
  • A high temperature of 82 degrees on 2/18

The one area lacking from the above list is measurable precipitation/snow melt, which amounted to only 1 inch.
