How often does your location see highs of 70 F (21 C) or above in winter?

I define winter as December through February for the Northern Hemisphere- sorry March is too much of a shoulder season and June through August for the Southern Hemisphere.

We usually see about 2-3 days in December (haven't seen any yet this December although it has come close over the past two days), 1-3 days in January and 2-5 in February. Occasionally, we can get a whole week of 70 + in winter but it usually only lasts a day or two.

Usually all three months get a temperature of 70 or above at least once. 2009-2010 was a rare winter where the last 70s was in November and didn't happen again until March.

Never. 60 is considered a heat wave

It's happened but before I lived here.

Almost never. You can just about forget 20C days for the entire period from June to August.

May usually sees a couple and August aswell, but not every year. In June and July, forget it.

We had a one-off 23C day in July this year, and the media were banging on about how hot it was, the "hottest July on record" and tripe like that

Maybe once a winter. I've only got records for the last 5 years, and four of them had one day that only just squeaked in at 70F.

Once every 50 years. Highs in the mid 60s is usually the warmest it gets in central NJ for winter.
