So, here we are three quarters of the way through January and we’ve yet to have a plowable snow all winter. Quite surprising for our southern New England location. I feel bad for theguys who plow snow for a living, but then again they are probably still living off last year’s record snowfall.
Any chance we can make it through the winter without being plowed once? Probably not, especially with storm Jonas headed in our direction even though the current forecast is for 1 to 3 inches in our neck of the woods.
So what is typical weather for January in the Litchfield area?
|Average winter snowfall in the Northwestern Hills||12.3 inches|
|Average high temperature||32⁰ F|
|Record high temperature||62⁰ F on 1/19/73|
|Average low temperature||13⁰ F|
|Record low temperature||-27⁰ on 1/22/61|

Here’s a parting thought on the positive side: it’s still possible we won’t be plowed this winter and there’s still time left to set a new record high.
