January Thaws tend to occur around the 4th of the month or the more classic Thaw between the 23rd and 27th. Eye On The Sky meteorologist Mark Breen says it is a statistical occurrence but there is no known cause why it persists.

Chris Bouchard believes this year's earlier-than-usual thaw was caused by the "Bermuda High," which tends to bring us heat during the summer months. Bouchard also dispelled a common weather myth by saying, "It's never too cold to snow."
