Excerpt from Climatological Data, Vol. 76: West Virginia; January, 1968
The first 18 days were extremely cold and snowy. Heavy snow and drifted roads closed many schools January 15 and 16. A general thaw greatly reduced the snow depths on January 21 and the balance was washed away by the rainfall near the end of the month. Continuous snow cover at Huntington, from December 28 through January 20, was the longest since snow records began in 1948. Although statewide snow fall was generally above average for January, monthly precipitation at most stations was be tween 1 and 2 inches below normal.
These notes highlight several noteworthy weather events and were compiled before data processing for this publication was completed. For further details see the accompanying tables or this month's issue of storm data.
Monthly temperatures averaged about 7' below normal. It is interesting to note that, in the decade of the l9oo's so far, most Januarys have had below normal monthly temperatures. January 1967 was warmest and considerably above normal, January 1960 averaged only slightly above normal.
