By Matt SpetalnickJanuary 22, 2018 10:08:22It was a cold winter, but it’s the coldest month of the year on record.
That’s according to NOAA and researchers who’ve compiled an interactive map showing where and how much it feels like temperatures have dropped in the United States.
The map, which shows the monthly average temperature from January 2018 to March 2019, is part of a study by the University of Washington and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The researchers said that while January was a particularly cold month, it didn’t necessarily mean that there wasn’t a lot of snow on the ground.
The coldest months of the winter season are typically December and January, when the average temperature is less than freezing.
This year, however, the cold weather may have actually been worse than normal, according to the NOAA researchers.
According to the National Weather Service, the average maximum temperature for January was 0 degrees F (-1 Celsius) and the average minimum temperature was 9 degrees F (4.6 Celsius).
In comparison, in February and March, the maximum temperature was 6 degrees F and the minimum was 6.8 degrees F.
Snow is a major factor in cold weather, according the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
The colder the weather, the more ice is on the snow, which can reduce the amount of snowfall.
Snow and ice also affect how much snow falls on roads.
The more snow, the greater the chance of an icy road, according NOAA.
The average snowfall for January in Washington state was more than 1.4 inches (3 centimeters), according to state data.
In Washington, the snowfall in the first quarter of 2018 was 7.3 inches (21 centimeters).
In Washington state, the largest snowfall was about 2.5 inches (7 centimeters).
According to NOAA, the winter snowfall has also been falling in more areas than usual.
In January, the state recorded about 5.5 feet (1.9 meters) of snow in the mountains.
The same month, the number of inches fell in the Puget Sound area was about 3 feet (10 centimeters).
