Feverish February

The combination of sunshine and a strong flow of warm air from the south pushed temperatures into record territory for numerous sites across the Northeast on February 20. High temperatures for most places except northern New England ranged from the mid 50s to low 80s, which was generally 20°F to 35°F warmer than normal.
