Feb. 28 would have to be 108 degrees to ward off the record for coldest February in Miles City, Mont., since records have been kept.

The National Weather Service office in Montana's largest city, Billings, called it: "Not going to happen."

A 108-degree day in February would shatter records of its own, of course. The warmest ever recorded in Miles City on a Feb. 28 was 69 degrees in 1992.

The Miles City forecast was for high of 30 degrees. The normal is 40 degrees.

This February, the city has averaged 5.3 degrees until the penultimate day of the month. The previous coldest February was 7.1 degrees in 1949, and a normal February, while not balmy, is 24.4 degrees.

It's funny because some of the weather guys in Miles City stopped to figure out it would take 108°F day to bring up the average. It's meant to be funny more than anything else. And, yes, it helps confirm global warming. Global warming means greater extremes of temperatures as you move away from oceans.

Well, they're not sending their best, or their brightest, that's for sure (climate deniers, not north dakotans)
