New Year’s Eve & New Year’s Day

December 30, 2007 at 9:22 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

As we prepare to begin 2008, we will be talking about the weather in 2007 for years to come. One of the warmest and one of the wettest years on record; an incredible severe weather season; the wettest start to a summer; memorable and massive tornadoes in very populated areas; the end of an historic drought.

With no more rain in this year’s forecast, 2007 is now the 5th wettest year on record for the metroplex. Here is the official list:

1) 53.54″ (1991)

2) 51.03″ (1932)

3) 50.62″ (1973)

4) 50.49″ (1957)

5) 50.05″ (2007)

As far as temperatures, the average for 2007 thru December 29th is 67.8 degrees. That makes this the 12th warmest year on record. 2006 was the warmest year ever for North Texas as well as other parts of the world. The average low temperature this year was an incredible 58.3 degrees which ties 2006 for the 2nd warmest year on record. Only 1998 had a warmer average low temperature over the course of the year.

Sunday was a beautiful day with highs in the mid 60s. But a big cold front will bring us back to reality on Monday with very cold temperatures and blustery winds by New Year’s Eve. Below are two links. The first is the history of New Year’s Eve weather in North Texas. The second is the history for New Year’s Day.
