SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - It may be cold now but 2012 was the warmest year on record especially for us here in the northeast.
According to the Northeast Regional Climate Center, for most major cities 2012 was the "hottest" year ever recorded.
In New England, Boston; Worcester; Hartford, Connecticut and Burlington, Vermont all broke the record for the warmest annual temperature last year.
Sandy Borsari says, "It seems like everything is more severe now. I definitely believe there's change. I know there's change and I don't know what we can do about it if at all. "
After some mild weather at the beginning of winter it's feeling more like it should now.
Typically we see the coldest weather of the year over the next couple of weeks with our average high temperature around 30 degrees and our average low temperature around 15 degrees.
Although last winter we didn't see much at all this year most areas have already seen about 12 inches of snow.
On average during the month of January we receive just over 13 inches of snow.
