The month's not over yet but the numbers that follow are real close:

From Corvallis Oregon, Hyslop Field a few miles north of town.

Ave Max = 43.6 (6.44); -7.5 (-4.2)
Ave Min = 31.2 (-0.5); -4.1 (-2.3)
This gives an average of 37.4 (3.0) or approximately 5.8 (3.2) below long term averages.
Rainfall = 6.94 (176.3mm); +1.69 (42.9). There were four snow days yielding 5.25 inches (133.4mm).

This was a singularly unpleasant month even by the anemic standards of the Mid Willamette Valley. We clocked a fourth ever coldest February and the chilliest since 1989. "Ever" goes back to 1889. Portland, Eugene and Salem also had near record cold for the month.
There were some sunny and bright days but every one of them was cold and there wasn't that much sunlight to go around in any case. I never needed to worry about sunburn. Wind, however wasn't much of a problem here as it was in other places nearby but I saw one gust recorded at Hyslop at 32 MPH (14.3 M/S)

What of March and the rest of spring? The Climate Prediction Center still calls for warmer and dryer conditions prevailing through the spring but I am not so confident. I have looked at some of the recent synoptics and what I am seeing is a Rossby Wave resonance setting up in the Northern Hemisphere. What that means in English is the Jet Stream is locked in the world wide circulation it is in now and the various air masses on either side of it are locked into position as long as this resonance is in place. The northern tier of the United States, particularly the western half north of about 35 degrees latitude is now sitting under a cold trough that is generating these abnormally cold temperatures and excess rainfall.

And that cold trough is showing no signs of going anywhere anytime soon. I am predicting a March that will run anywhere from 2 to as much as 7 degrees (f) below average accompanied by rainfall that is 1 to 3 inches above average. I am also betting on accumulating snow. In fact some is predicted for Corvallis on the 1st or 2nd. I'll know more of April and beyond as we get closer to it....

We've set an all-time record for snowfall this February, or at least since records started being kept. As of last Monday, we've had just a tad over 55 inches for the month. The previous February record was in 1955 with 39.5 inches.

For the season, we're at 80 inches, (as of last Monday), the normal for the entire season is 69.8 inches. Lookout Pass, (the continental divide on Interstate 90 at the Idaho/Montana border), has well over 300 inches so far this season.

The data for the last day here hasn't been added as of yet, but -2.8C is the warmest it got here for sure. So the entire month stood below freezing here. I would rate it higher than last month due to the extra snow, and the bitter cold temperatures really didn't happen as often, but the average temperature was the same as it never really got very warm, nor did it have the arctic outbreak that late January had.

Where I live in Richland, Wa we average 16F colder than the monthly average and on the very hottest day of the month, we hit 38F which is 11F colder than our average high daily temp in February. We also set a February record for snow fall. Our 10 day forecast is about 20F below average and includes a couplf of mornings in the 9F range.

It was a bit above normal in terms of temperature.
It was a very wet month with almost double our normal precipitation.
Snowfall was below normal by a couple inches ~5cm below normal.
The only two real big stories this month was hitting 62F (16.7C) just 3 days after we bottomed out the end of January at -11F (-27.9C) and the wind storm last weekend where we had a gust of 66mph (106.2kmh).
Half the month saw sunny skies which is unusual in the winter here.

February 2019 in Indianapolis:
Highest temp: 62F (16.7C) on the 3rd
Lowest temp: 10F (-12.2C) on the 9th
Average 33.8F (1C)
1.7F above normal
Precipitation: 4.68 inches (11.89cm)
Snowfall: 4.5 inches (11.43cm)

About average for the month but it just shows you temps are definitely not the whole story,
most people around here were not happy campers....this february was no fun at all...
the month came with a nasty of mix of snow with ice...and not once but 2 or 3 times...
layers of ice mixed with snow is a really bad combo...also some very windy days too.
