FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Now that we're through with 2019, let’s take a look back at last year’s highs and lows.

Here’s some of the data from the National Weather Service’s annual climate report.

We saw 15 days with high temperatures of 90 degrees or warmer, which is 2 more days than what we typically see in a year. 

The warmest high temperature was 95 degrees, which happened on both July 2nd and 10th.

122 days had low temperatures below 32 degrees, but only 4 of those had lows below 0.

The lowest temperature we had last year was -13 degrees, which happened January 30th.

We broke a few records during the polar vortex.

The record cold low and high temperatures were both broken on January 30th.

And the record cold high temperature was tied on the 31st, when the high was 6 degrees.

Our average temperature for the year was 51.3 degrees, which is slightly above the normal of 50.5 degrees.

That ties for the 32nd warmest year on record.

Even with our wet spring, we ended up seeing about 0.7"  more precipitation than normal.

We only had 8 days when rain totals were over an inch.

There were no days were the rainfall total was above 2 inches.

In terms of snowfall, we were below our average of 33.5" by 0.1".
