Sick of the cold yet? Here's why. The temperature stayed below freezing for 43 consecutive days in parts of Vermont up until Wednesday.

That's the second longest streak of below-freezing days for Montpelier and St. Johnsbury.

Last month was the coldest February on record in parts of the state.

Both Montpelier and Rutland recorded the coldest Februaries ever.

The average temperature was 5.1 degrees in Montpelier, when it's typically 19.9 degrees on average. Rutland endured a chilly average of 5.2 degrees when the normal average for February is 20.7 degrees.

The National Weather Service says more seasonal temperatures - in the 20s and 30s - are in the forecast for this weekend and next week.
