Holy Cold, Batman!

Here are the low temperatures from this morning. My teeth are chattering just looking at them! We had decent radiational cooling last night. Without the insulation cloud cover provides, all our warmth escapes into the atmosphere. Snow on the ground also helps cool off temperatures for obvious reasons (snow is cold)!

Low Temperatures (in degrees F)
  • Willimantic: -9
  • Windsor Locks: -6
  • Danbury: -5
  • Hartford: 1
  • New Haven: 4
And this wasn't a quick drop below freezing!
  • Willimantic: 0 or below for 11 hours
  • Danbury: 7 hours below zero
  • Windsor Locks: 4 hours below freezing
