1 JAN 11 - (Excerpts) - NATIONAL WEATHER SVC MELBOURNE FL ... COLDEST DECEMBER ON RECORD FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA... RAINFALL ALSO WELL BELOW NORMAL...

THREE SEPARATE FREEZE EVENTS WERE EXPERIENCED THIS DECEMBER ... ON THE MORNINGS OF THE 7-8TH...14-16TH...AND 27-29TH.

DAILY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE DEPARTURES REMAINED BELOW NORMAL ALMOST EVERY SINGLE DAY WITH DEPARTURES AS HIGH 15 TO 25 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON SEVERAL DAYS. IN ADDITION...NUMEROUS RECORD LOWS AND COOL HIGHS WERE BROKEN THROUGHOUT THE MONTH.

MONTHLY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE DEPARTURES ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA WERE 9 TO 11 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THESE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE VALUES ... SHATTERED THE PREVIOUS COLDEST DECEMBER RECORDS BY A WHOLE 2 TO 4 DEGREES. RECORDS GO AS FAR BACK AS THE EARLY 20S... EVEN COOP SITES THAT HAVE DATA EXTENDING BACK INTO THE EARLY 1900S SUCH AS TITUSVILLE...FORT PIERCE AND DELAND EXPERIENCED THEIR COLDEST DECEMBER ON RECORD BY A LARGE MARGIN.

THE MAIN CONTRIBUTING FACTOR ... WAS A PERSISTENT AND STRONG NEGATIVE PHASE OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC OSCILLATION. THE NEGATIVE PHASE OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC OSCILLATION TYPICALLY BRINGS MORE COLD AIR OUTBREAKS ALONG THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN UNITED STATES.

- DAYTONA BEACH HAD AN AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE OF 50.1 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT ... 10.7 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL... THE COLDEST
DECEMBER ON RECORD FOR THIS SITE. (RECORDS GO BACK TO 1923)

- ORLANDO HAD AN AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE OF 52.0 DEGREES
FAHRENHEIT ... 11.0 DEGREE BELOW NORMAL... THE COLDEST
