Miami Beach Leads the U.S. in Worst Winter Weather for 2009-2010 Season










Atlanta, GA (Vocus) March 20, 2010

In honor of the first day of spring this Saturday, March 20, The Weather Channel is helping the residents of Miami Beach, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and others breathe a huge sigh of relief. Over the past three months, their cities lead the United States in the “worst winter weather” for the season, according to data compiled by The Weather Channel.

A combination of sustained precipitation and prolonged cold temperatures from December 2009 to February 2010 shattered previous decades-old records and created memorable firsts.

    Miami Beach, FL, and the surrounding area experienced their second coldest winter since 1927
    Baltimore, MD, experienced record snowfalls of 77 in., including the nearby BWI Airport (31 in.) and Washington-Dulles International Airport (26 in.)
    Three of the top 10 snowstorms on record for Philadelphia, PA, occurred this season
    This season marked a first for Dallas, TX: falling snow on December 24, Christmas Eve
