Final Edition of Low Temperatures

| January 16, 2009 @ 11:54 am | 32 Replies

This is quite a round up of low temperatures–state, regional and national. Hope you don’t get bored reading through all of this. Two things to remember. We get more than one report from different sources in the same community. The official weather stations send out their low temperature at 6:00 a.m. and noon. On a morning like this, their low can occur after 6:00 a.m. and we may not know it until noon.
