FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Meteorological winter began Dec. 1st, which gave us a chance to look back at the previous season.

Meteorological fall ran from Sept. 1st to Nov. 30th.

This corresponds to the months where the transition occurs from the warmest temperatures to the coldest ones.

During the fall this year, we broke a few records that were over a century old.

The warmest high temperature during the season was 89 degrees, which happened on Sept. 12th, 30th and Oct. 1st.

We broke the record for the warmest high temperature on Oct. 1st, which was 88 degrees, set back in 1897.

With the record cold snap we saw in the middle of November, we broke record cold lows too.

The coldest low temperature was 6 degrees, which happened on Nov. 13th.

It broke a previous record set back in 1911.

During the entire season, we saw 22 days where the low temperature was below or equal to 32 degrees.

Typically, we see about 19 days with lows below or at 32 degrees.

With all the snow that fell in November, this fall became the 8th snowiest fall on record with 6.9 inches of snow.

That's 4.8 inches above average.

And it's the snowiest fall since 1996, when 8.1 inches of snow fell.
