Here are some February party poopers:-

Example 1

February 1997 which ruined what had been a decent winter

I know. February 1997 was a right disappointment for me in winter 1996/1997:-

November 1996 = 5.9c C.E.T

December 1996 = 2.9c C.E.T

January 1997 = 2.5c C.E.T

February 1997 = 6.7c C.E.T ahhh! :rolleyes::hi:

The above is a recent example of a February ruining a good winter. There are 2 more examples of this happening in the last 30 years (before I was born):-

Example 2

February 1982 ruined the winter of 1981/1982:-

December 1981 = 0.3c C.E.T

January 1982 = 2.6c C.E.T

February 1982 = 4.8c C.E.T Oh dear...

Example 3

February 1977 ruined the winter of 1976/1977

December 1976 = 2.0c C.E.T

January 1977 = 2.8c C.E.T

February 1977 = 5.2c C.E.T Oh no...

Hints of a 5-year cycle at play perhaps: February 1987 I don't recall for any wintry weather either after the wonderful January and before a cold March and warm April. Similarly 2002 with another rubbish mild Feb after a cold Dec and early Jan. As for 1992: that winter I remember as completely snowless but while there were decent frosts in Dec and Jan I don't recall much of note in Feb, so perhaps it had the same general pattern.

2007 to break this cycle?
