Valentine’s Day Weather History! 

The weather for last year's Valentine's Day was a good day to snuggle with your loved one. On February 14, 2016, the low temperature was a frigid 12 degrees below zero. That –12° reading barely missed the record low for February 14, of -13° which was set in 1943.

Here’s a crazy stat from last Valentine’s Day, it was the coldest temperature of any day in Buffalo over the last 34 years.

The record high for Valentine’s Day is 57° set in 1946. The average high is 33° and the average low is 19°.

Looking at the last 73 years only 1 day had high temperatures in the single digits. 50 times temperatures were in the 20s or 30s, and 3 times temperatures were in the 50s.

Measurable snow (0.1”) occurs about 50% of the time. Only 1 time in the last 73 years did Valentine’s Day have a snowstorm with snow totaling greater than 6 inches. That storm occurred in 1960 when 12” of snow blanketed Western New York.
