Here are the actual high temperatures in Syracuse for each day in February 2021 compared to the average high, (based on stats that go back to 1901) and the difference that day, + or – as well as a running deficit or surfeit. Here is the website I used for these numbers:
Accuweather now gives the actual highs but not the historical averages for each date:
I used this for the historical averages:
Daily Normals for Syracuse, NY

The numbers are the date, the actual high, the historical average high, the net difference, the cumulative net since January 1st, the numbers of days we exceeded the historical average, the number of days we didn't reach it and the number of days we tied it.

Comments: Winter was a whimp in December and January but reminded us he was here in February: -51 degrees and 11-17 vs. the average high. It seemed the whole month like we were stuck in the middle of it when, in fact it was time for the winter weather, to back off, break up and wind down. They are predicted we might hit 60 next week so maybe the season are preparing to change. The big dates are:
3/7: Average high reaches 40
3/14: Daylight Saving time
3/20: First Day of Spring
3/31: Average high reaches 50
4/21: Average high reaches 60
5/18: Average high reaches 70
6/20: First Day of Summer
6/23: Average high reaches 80
It’s an optimistic time of year – if you don’t get frustrated by the rate of change. Expect things to happen when they are likely to happen and you’ll be a happy camper.
