Neil Hayward and Robert H. Stymeist

The exceptionally mild weather between Christmas and the New Year continued well into January. The temperature was above average for 16 days in January, with a high of 52 degrees recorded on January 16. A winter storm brought a mix of rain and snow and bitter cold on January 27—prior to which Boston had only recorded three-tenths of an inch of snow for the month. Snow totals from the storm were 4.4 inches at Logan Airport in Boston, 5.3 inches in Worcester, 2.5–4.0 inches on Cape Cod, and 13 inches in the town of Savoy in Berkshire County.
