Last month's record-setting blizzard aside, it appears we're in for a relatively warm winter this year. At least compared to last year's frozen tundra of never-ceasing death.

According to AccuWeather predictions, we can expect an average temperature of 46 degrees in the city for the month of February. That's pretty astounding when you compare it to the 24.1 degree average that we suffered through last year. (The third coldest winter on record.) In fact, the temperatures this year are predicted to rarely drop into the 20s. Historically, the average low temperature in NYC has been 27 degrees with an average high of 44.

It's also shaping up to be a relatively sunny month with sunshine forecast for almost half the days.

See, winter really isn't that bad after all.

Here's AccuWeather's full current forecast.
