December Anomaly

Temperature anomalies in the lower 48 through the first 20 days of December.  Through Wednesday, both Fargo Moorhead and Grand Forks/East Grand Forks are running around 8 degrees above average.  At our current pace we would finish the month as the 4th warmest on record.  Of course this comes on the heels of four colder than average Decembers with all four of those finished in the top 10 snowiest on record as well.
