SPOKANE, Wash. - Golf courses are already open around Spokane, which is enjoying one of the mildest winters in its history thanks to El Nino weather patterns.
     
The National Weather Service said January and February were the fourth-warmest since record keeping began in 1881. Spokane had an average temperature of 36.4 degrees over the past two months, which is 6.6 degrees above normal. Temperatures this week have approached 60 degrees in town.
     
And, after record snowfall of more than 97 inches last winter, the amount of snow this winter is on pace to be among the lowest accumulations in history. Spokane International Airport has reported 13.7 inches of snow this season. If no more snow falls, it would be the third lowest since measuring began in 1892.
