March 7 (Bloomberg) -- This winter in the contiguous U.S. was the fourth-warmest on record, with an average temperature of 36.8 degrees Fahrenheit (2.7 Celsius), the National Climatic Data Center said.

The average temperature in the lower 48 states was 3.9 degrees above the 1901 to 2000 long-term average, according to the center in Asheville, North Carolina.

The winter was the warmest since the record-warm winter of 2000, which had an average temperature of 37.17 degrees, the center said. Meteorologists designate winter as being from Dec. 1 to Feb. 29.
