December 2006 — Warm and Wet

December 2006 was the warmest December in 24 years and the second warmest in 41 years. The average temperature for the month (at About My Weather Station) was 36.5°, giving us the sixth warmest December on record in Fort Wayne and narrowly missing the fifth spot of 36.6° in 1965. The warmest December on record was 39.9° in 1982. The official monthly average temperature for Fort Wayne was 36.2°, which is still the sixth warmest on record.

The 4.39" of precipitation received here in December tied us with 1982 for the eighth wettest December in Fort Wayne. The official monthly precipitation for Fort Wayne was 4.73" (the airport was in the middle of the band of snow on the 7th) and made this officially the sixth wettest December on record.

At our house, we only received 1" snowfall in December. That makes it the sixth least snowy December. However, the airport received 4.8" of snow, so it is officially only 3.5" short of the normal monthly snowfall.
