  1. If cold records were broken shouldn’t they appear in the NOAA NCEI Global Daily Record Summarys? Am I missing something or is NOAA?

    • Potential frosts that can occur at night or early morning can kill vulnerable crops. Lows are monitored as a signal for the beginning and the end of the growing season. Plus when you are looking at global temperature anomalies you aren’t just looking at the high or the low you are looking at the average of the two. You might set a record cold max but if it’s cloudy and the temperature only drops a few degrees the whole day ends up being average because of no night time drop and vice versa.
