You might know about the Hohnholz Ranch reading in CO on the 6th, when they hit -48.

 

 

Yes.  Closer to where I live, the official station at Walden also hit -48 on the 6th.  I had -43 at my house.

 

The thing about the cold snap though, is that it was very short lived.   January 2017 actually ended up being warmer than normal.  Two days after I had the -43, it was 85 degrees warmer.


At home:

 

Coldest temperature thus far in 2018:   -26 on 2/21

 

Warmest temperature thus far in 2018:  99 on 7/8 (All time record high)

 

Precip thus far in 2018:   7.89 inches

 

Snowfall thus far in 2018:   35.7 inches

 

Last frost of early summer:  7/1

 

First frost of late summer:  8/29

 

Last snow of late spring:  5/1 

 

First snow of early fall:

Wow. The cold anomalies persisted here. PDX hit 17 during this cold snap, but the following week was even colder. We had the snowstorm on the 10th-11th, followed by a low of 11 at PDX. Coldest reading in any month since December 1998.

  • I also noticed that Moab had a 109 on 5/31/1910.   I believe it is valid.  Fillmore and Richfield both had a 103 and Moab is usually much warmer than those two locations.

Vernon, south of Tooele also supposedly recorded a 76 on 12/6/1965, but this reading seems very dubious.  Tooele only reached 45 that day.

 

 

I may have to rethink this one.  There was definitely a strange temperature inversion going on.  Places higher than the temperature inversion reported some really high temperatures.  Silver Lake Brighton at 8740 feet elevation recorded a 64 degrees the next day. This is warmer than the March and November records. I also dismissed this reading, not noticing earlier that it coincided with the Vernon reading.  

 

Still impressive, but not quite on the same scale, Deer Creek Dam (Wasatch Mountains) recorded a 63.  Parowan a 62.  

 

If Brighton (elevation 8740 feet) really did hit 64, Vernon (5490) could have hit 76.  Both readings are off the chart for either location, but seem to collaborate each other.  It would be a heck of an inversion as well and Salt Lake and Tooele were much cooler.
