The last three months have been the warmest winter in recorded history, but don't tell that to New England.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says December, January and February were the warmest winter period in world history, beating the previous mark set last year. The winter period was nearly one and a half degrees warmer than any previously recorded. NOAA also says February was the second warmest winter month ever recorded.

But don't tell that to cities like Bangor, Maine; Buffalo, New York; and Worcester, Massachusetts.  NOAA says those cities and several others set records for coldest February ever. Bangor was especially chilly, with an average temperature for the month of six-point-one degrees.  (Metro Networks Inc)
