the average mean temperature last month was 31.7°, a 10.3 degree difference from this month. the last time January and February had this big of such a difference was in 2004 (24.7° in Jan. and 35.0° in Feb.).


This the first time record (warm) temps for the same month were set in back to back years since November 1895/1896.


another interesting fact about February 21's high of 78° is that no other day between November 16 and March 9 has ever been this warm.


this brought to mind the Augusts of 2015 and 2016 when 2015 was originally the third hottest but then 2016 knocked the month down to fourth hottest and took over the spot as third hottest (the two months were two tenths of a degree apart).


Something came to my mind when you said, "At one point during the month there was a stretch of twelve days (Feb. 14-25) in which every day but one had measurable precipitation", because last February, during the very same date range, all but one of those days had no measurable precipitation. Also, this month, which was the wettest February in eight years, reversed course from last month, as 2018 was the driest January in eight years.
