Brrr: February brought record cold, snow to Northeast

Posted:
 ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- February 2015 was one for the record books in the Northeast -- the coldest month ever for three upstate New York cities and the snowiest month ever for Boston.

The Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell University says Buffalo, Syracuse and Ithaca shivered through their coldest month on record.

Center Director Art DeGaetano says February's average temperature was 10.9 degrees in Buffalo, beating the 1934 record of 11.4. The monthly average was 9.0 in Syracuse and 10.2 in Ithaca.

Boston's 64.8 inches of snow easily beat the city's 2003 record February snowfall of 41.6 inches. Boston needs a little less than 6 inches of snow before the end of May to have its snowiest winter on record.

DeGaetano says February temperatures in the Northeast were the farthest below normal of anywhere on Earth.
