NASELLE - The biggest weather news in the Naselle area for the month of January was not in the amount of rainfall, but in the precipitation in the form of snow, hail and frozen rain, and in the persistently low temperatures for much of the month. The month's precipitation, as measured at the Naselle Hatchery, was 16.43 inches, below the January average of 17.86 inches.

The night-time low temperatures dropped below freezing on 20 nights, with the low temperature not getting above freezing on the last 17 nights of the month. The lowest temperature recorded during the month was four nights between the Jan. 22 and Jan. 26 when the mercury dipped to 21 degrees on each of those nights. The daytime highs during that period ranged from 40 to 49 degrees. The high temperatures for the month were two days with readings of 50 degrees, four days before the mercury took a nosedive.
