Streak of Below Freezing Days Comes to an End

...Consecutive Streak of Below Freezing Days Comes to an End...

The high temperature at the National Weather Service Office in Negaunee Township climbed above freezing on Sunday, February 13th.  The last time the temperature was above freezing was back on New Year's  Day when the high temperature was 34 degrees.  That is 42 consecutive days with the temperatures at or below freezing. While that seems like a long stretch, it only ranks as the 12th longest stretch for consecutive below freezing days at the National Weather Service Office and is nowhere near the all-time record of 72 days set back in the winter of 1978/1979.

Below is a table showing the the longest consecutive streaks and the dates that each streak started.
