February 2014 Monthly Weather Summary

Checking the greens requires specialized equipment.

February 2014 was cold. Twenty of the 28 days did not get above freezing. Every single day in the month had a low temperature below 32 degrees. We saw four days with a low temperature below zero, with the lowest temperature for the month of -10.2 degrees (Feb 28.) The high temperature for the month was 46.6 (19th), the middle of a four day stretch which saw highs reach the 40's.  The average temperature for the month was 19.2 degrees.

The month did not see any rain, but the weather station recorded 0.85 inches of water on the 20th, most likely due to melting snow in the collector.

The average windspeed was 4.2 mph. The highest sustained windspeed was 37 mph (Feb21st.)

I have heard dire predictions coming from the MSU Turf Grass people about how the weather is impacting greens and fairways. They predict that the ice & snow covering the greens for such an extended period of time will result in death from oxygen depletion. What do you think? Time to break out the shovels and ice picks?
