Places Having the Most Unusually Mild Winters this Year

Methodology

To determine which cities are having milder-than-average winters this year, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed monthly temperature and precipitation data from the U.S. Historical Climatology Network Monthly (USHCN) Version 2.5.0 for the months of November, December, and January for 1,218 stations across the United States. Only years for which all 12 months of data were available were included in the historical winter average calculations.

Average weather for those months for each city was created using historical monthly data for the number of years available for each weather station associated with the city.

Total population, median household income, and educational attainment in cities for which data was available came from the American Community Survey 2018 and are 5-Year Estimates.
