Here are some of the highlights or lowlights from our weather in 2011. The year started off consistently cold and snowy for both January and February. The two months produced a measurement of 66 inches of snow which pushed the seasonal total to 127”. This was more than two feet above normal. As we transitioned from winter to spring, April and May brought record rainfall to the region. It ended up being the 2nd wettest spring in the history of Rochester. Fortunately we turned the corner in June when we started a stretch of dry and hot weather. July 21st reached 98 degrees with some communities recording over 100 degrees for the first time since the 1950s. On August 21st Wayne County saw an EF2 rated tornado near Savannah in the town of Butler. Winds were estimated at nearly 120 mph creating an 11 mile path of damage. Lets hope for a calm 2012.
