From New York, down to the Wiregrass, it's been an extremely cold, long winter this year all over the country and it's not over yet!

NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center released its "State of the Climate report" for February.

And nationally, it was the 37th coldest February on record.

The average temperature for the US during winter was just below freezing at 31.3F. While not the coldest ever, that is still over a 1.5 degrees colder than average. That's down sharply from the past two winters.

Also of note, nearly 91 percent of the Great Lakes were frozen over at one point, the second biggest Great Lakes freeze since 1973.
