It wasn't your imagination. The sun made its fewest January appearances since the State Climatology Office began taking solar observations in 1963.
We're a week removed and have seen the sun in February, but that dubious new record is among the interesting talking points in this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast with climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois.
They also discuss near record-breaking highs and warmest low temperatures this past weekend, the impact of a mild winter on recreational activities, and why making long-range predictions is challenging for rodents like Punxsutawney Phil as well as human forecasters.
