Cooler than February 2024 by all measures, except for an equal amount of ground frosts.  Despite that, temperatures were still slightly above average - particularly at night.  Fewer air frosts than normal, and a single day with falling snow which lay on the ground for 2 hours around 0900.  A wet month with very few completely dry days.
