February 2013 was colder than normal while precipitation was near to below normal.
The first week of the month was quiet with mostly dry weather and mild early February temperatures. But two storms, the first on the 9th and the second on the 11th brought significant precipitation over the north. High winds were experienced over the eastern half of the state on the 9th. The weather quieted down from the 12th through 19th with just a couple of very weak systems and mostly below normal temperatures. Strong winds, snow and colder temperatures arrived on the 20th. An active weather pattern continued through the rest of the month with storms on the 22nd, 24th and 26th. Not alot of snow fell with the first and last of these systems, but the storm on the 24th provided moderate to heavy snow across the eastern plains, including blizzard conditions. Throughout the active weather from the 20th through the end of the month temperatures were well below normal.
