Cold San Antonio ‘shatters’ 102-year-old record

Hard freeze topples daily records for both Tuesday and Wednesday and ties for fourth-coldest record for the entire month of November._________________

14 Nov 2018 – The mercury in San Antonio, Texas, plunged to 23F (-5C) at the airport this morning, tying for the fourth-coldest November low temp on record.

The fourth coldest for the entire month mind you, not just for the date. The only colder temperatures were recorded in 1976 and 1886, and both were later in the month.

The cold weather also broke daily records on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

“This shatters the old record low of 28 degrees set back in 1916,” the National Weather Service tweeted of Wednesday’s weather. Tuesday night just before midnight, the city hit 28 degrees, breaking the previous record of 29 set in 1907, records show.

Typically, the average high for the month of November is about 71 degrees and the normal low is 51 degrees.

Temperatures are forecast to sink again to 33F by Thursday morning, meteorologists said.

  1. Was stationed at Ft. Sam Houston for a few months. Hotter than bejeebers day and night.
    Saw pictures of San Antone with snow. Never really believed it could get that cold.
    Guess I was wrong.
    Used to like to play golf at this old quarry that had been converted into a golf course.
    Humid like you can’t believe down in the bottom of that place.

    • I guess it depends on where your moving to San Antonio from. I recently moved to the higher elevation North I-10 area From Laredo and I was impressed with the moderate heat and cooler nights. San Antonio has very nice weather for Texas. By far the best weather of the big cities.
      As for global cooling, South Texas has seen a noticeable wetter, cooler climate over the last 24 months. It still has a few 115+ degree August days but far fewer. The amount of rain has been extreme and South Texas is a good candidate to become the bread basket for the US if the Grand Solar Minimum becomes a reality.

  2. It’s global cooling, no wait, it’s global warming, what, no, it’s global cooling, again, it’s global warming, …. Can’t these IDIOTS make up their mind. Now, it’s social, economic, racial and/or environ-mental (pun intended) JUSTICE (read distribution of wealth from the capitalist job generating class to the welfare class, some more than government funding). Much more and we will be the former USSR, China, NoKo, half of Africa , South America, Asia, Cuba, Canada and others. Much more and Old socialist’ Karl Marx and his Communist Manifesto, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho, Castro, Alinsky and his Rules for Radicals and other radicals, will be smiling in their graves.

  3. Maybe I’m missing something, but the “both” in the following says to me that there were only 2 lower temps, so the new low temp must be a tie for 3rd lowest temp, not fourth:

    “14 Nov 2018 – The mercury in San Antonio, Texas, plunged to 23F (-5C) at the airport this morning, tying for the fourth-coldest November low temp on record.

    The fourth coldest for the entire month mind you, not just for the date. The only colder temperatures were recorded in 1976 and 1886, and both were later in the month.”
