CLEVELAND — The hottest St. Patrick's Day on record in Cleveland was 10 years ago. We hit 77 degrees in 2012. We haven't hit the 70s since then, but we have a shot this year.

Looking back at the data, we've only had five St. Patrick's Days in the 70s dating back to 1871. On the other end of the spectrum, it snowed on St. Patrick's Day 53 times. That's over a third of the time.

A look at the numbers in the last 10 years:

2021—61 degrees
2020—47 degrees
2019—40 degrees
2018—43 degrees
2017—43 degrees
2016—57 degrees
2015—60 degrees
2014—33 degrees
2013—32 degrees
2012—77 degrees

Enjoy the warm one this year, it's not likely to be this warm again for another 10 or so years.
