January 2009 Observations:
Average Daytime High was 67.8° F (2.3° Below Normal)
Average Overnight Low was 46.5° F (2.5° Above normal)
Average Mean was 57.15° (normal)

Highest Daytime Temperature was 82° on January 28th
Coldest Overnight Low Temperature was 26° on January 22nd

Coolest Maximum High was 44° on January 21st
Warmest Minimum Low was 64° on January 29th

Total Rainfall = 1.38" (2.33" below normal). Below normal rainfall for the 5th consecutive month.

Though observations say it was a normal month temp wise, it was chilly this month for sure as it has been since November.

Record Monthly High is 88° occurring twice in 1991
Record Monthly Low is 13° in 1981
Surprised your mean for January was normal. I was over 4 degrees cooler.
What kind of weather station/software do you use?
I don't use any software, I just have temperature gauge I bought years ago that keeps memory of the high and low temps.

I still use a rain gauge that you have to empty.

One of the schools that's a mile from me keeps the dewpoints, winds, barometer and such.

Weeki Wachi has been keeping records since the early 1960's and since I'm a mile from that station, I use the record highs/lows and rainfall amounts. I use that also for monthly averages and such.

Much of January's average for overnight low is 44, but we were averaging 46.5 in January. Despite cool afternoon highs in January, our overnight lows for the first twelve nights was in the mid 50's with occasional 60's at night. But after the 13th, that average dropped to 42.4 which accounts for my 46.5average. Many of these nights we had a lot of cloud cover.

Also there were some predicted freezes here in early January that never materialized where places like Ocala had those freezes. This probably accounts for the disparity between Spring Hill and Ocala.
