Monday’s temperatures in the Northeast with numbing. In some places, the mercury droped so low it almost disappeared. Why the temperature was so low it could sit on a dime and dangle its feet. The temp was so low it could crawl under the belly of a snake–although the snake would have been frozen solid in this case. Here’s a sampling of locations where they probably didn’t go through a lot of ice cream yesterday:
- -36 Saranac Lake, NY
- -35 North Troy, VT
- -28 Fryeburg, ME
- -20 Burlington, VT (as measured on my back porch)
- -13 Syracuse, NY
- and a relatively mild -1 in Providence, R.I.
Syracuse is on a pace that might challenge a couple records for snowfall–already 111 inches this year–and cold. And folks in the Northeast, brace yourselves. Although it’s warming up into the 20s and 30s, there are forecasts pointing to more subzero weather this weekend.
Stay warm and safe.
