Boston breaks 116-year-old record low

Second consecutive day of record-breaking cold

11 Nov 17 – The temperature dropped to 23F on Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service, breaking the old record low for the date of 24F set in 1901.

It also marked the second consecutive day of record-breaking cold for the Boston area.

On Friday, the city broke its previous 2004 record low temperature of 25F.

Boston isn’t the only part of the country experiencing cold, according to the weather service.

Meteorologist David Epstein said that Arctic air moved into the region on Friday, ushering in the coldest temperatures of the season so far.

Forecasters said the region could still see record cold on Sunday morning as well.

  1. Somehow, I dont think the amount of volcanic aerosols in the upper atomosphere
    were anywhere near the levels that they are today. So as we transit regressing though these old records rememeber that conditions today favor a much more serious plunge in temperature, not withstanding sunspot activity is so low on top of the atomospheric issues. Im still waitng to see how far the Great Lakes freeze over in 2018. Will be an interesting year. Perhaps pivotal?

  2. Currently on my radio there is some BS about the Bonn AGW/Climate Change™ shindig saying that everyone needs to restrict CO2 emissions more. Utter anti-science nonsense.

    Wrap-up well and store some fuel, food, and potable water people this is just the beginning of the winter, it could very likely get much worse.
    It’s a good time to order a Christmas present, try

  3. Let’s not forget about good old NYC which set record lows on Friday night, 11/10 and then again early on Saturday morning, 11/11. Friday night’s 25 beat a record set, I believe, in 1914 and Saturday’s 24 broke one set in 1933.

    Take that, Boston!!

  4. But surely this is the warmest year evah? How can it be cold? Interesting that there is a disconnect between the UAH satellite and surface temp series where UAH is actually higher. Usually it is the other way round.

  5. São Joaquim-SC (South of Brazil) registers the 4th frost of the month of November.
    It completes 107 days with frost on the hill top.
    Frost is still possible next weekend, almost 1 month summer.
    Still rates of 15 to 30% air humidity here.
    This seems to me a strong indication for La Niña.

  6. Totally consistent with anthropogical global warming theory.

    Meanwhile, the left coast is being buried under feet of snow, and ski resorts will be opening before Thanksgiving.

    Even the true believer AGW religious zealots have to be questioning the official dogma at this point. Right?
