... February 2015 climatological summary for northeastern and
central Nevada...

Exceptionally strong high pressure dominated the Great Basin
once again during the month of February. This resulted in
extremely warm weather across the area... with many daily
record highs and several monthly record highs. A storm system
brought mainly rain to northwestern Nevada from the 6th to
the 9th... interrupting the record warmth... which then promptly
resumed. Another system brought cooler weather and snow at the
very end of the month... but was not enough to off-set the
overall warm departures and negative precipitation deficits.
Not surprisingly... the lack of cold and precipitation resulted
in below normal snowfall as well.

The tables below summarize the weather at four of our Airport
climate sites during the period. Temperatures are in degrees
fahrenheit... while precipitation and snowfall is in inches.
