Valentine's Day Climatology

By  | 

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - On Valentine's Day, we've seen quite a variety of temperatures and rainfall totals in Bryan/College Station.

Valentine's Day Extremes

In 1945, we experienced a summer-like day with a record high of 83°. Way back in 1905, it was quite a bit colder on Valentine's Day in B/CS. You would definitely need to bundle up as the thermometer bottomed out at 14°. Our rainiest Valentine's Day you ask? That occurred back in 1959, when an umbrella came in handy for date night.

What about this year?

Valentine's Day and Evening Forecast

We're expecting a more typical Valentine's Day, but temperatures will be on the mild side with highs in the mid 60s. If you have plans for this evening, keep the umbrella handy as a few showers are possible, but it shouldn't be a washout.

February can be a wild month in the weather department, from highs in the 90s to mornings in the single digits, we can experience summer and winter all in one month. For those that are interested, the all-time record high for February is 99° set back in 1996 and the all-time record low is 5°. That's wild.
