Richmond saw its 5th-warmest January on record
Richmond saw its fifth-warmest January on record, according to data released last week from NOAA.
- Last month ended up with an average temperature that was 7.5°F above average.
The big picture: Most cities, particularly those east of the Mississippi River, had one of their 15 warmest Januarys, Axios' Andrew Freedman reports.
- Human-caused climate change raises the odds of a milder-than-average January, as the coldest months are warming the fastest in many parts of the U.S.
- A new analysis from Climate Central finds that 204 U.S. weather stations have seen a marked decline in the annual number of nights below 32°F since 1970.
