February 2015 was cold – really cold. But it wasn’t the coldest on record, according to Bill Gregway, local observer for the National Weather Service. The average temperature last month was 14.1 degrees. That is 11.3 degrees below average. “That’s pretty darn cold; but, we weren’t as cold as inland places like Syracuse,” Gregway said. “We didn’t have any big below zero readings like they did. Lake Ontario actually helped keep us warmer.”
