Comment 2805

Being curious, I just looked at the climate data from Hamilton Airport, which goes back to 1959.

The average temp for december is -2.7 C.

December 2006 averaged +1.6C which is a new record (47 year) high.

Only one other year on record is close, 1982 at +1.5C.

2005 was below normal at -4.2C, also 2000 at a chilly -8.2. Otherwise the last 10 years were at or above normal.

I note though that the standard deviations are highest in the winter, so more variable temps are found in winter as compared to summer.

January averages -6.0 so there is some hope for snow yet.
