Meanwhile, on the other side of the continent, check out the graph below which shows the average February temperature in Salt Lake City from 1928 to this year, the latter through yesterday. You want to talk about an outlier, well here it is. Average temperature so far this year is 48ºF. Next warmest is 1995 (42.3ºF). However, I just looked at the latest forecast models and it looks like we're going to be losing some of that lead by the end of the month.
