It's chilly in the mornings at the condo at Copper Mountain. I had 25F this morning. Here are some photos of the frost covered golf course and a photo showing just how thick the frost was on my windshield.

Fraser (on average, the coldest town in the Lower 48 that has a weather station) was a much warmer 37F this morning.   The coldest official reading in the Lower 48 this morning was 28F at Climax Colorado.  I'm still guessing that by number of days with frost, Copper Mountain might be coldest in the lower 48, even though there is no weather station.  

 

Since I have been here (July 24) there have only been 2 nights above freezing.

Pretty short golf season with year round frost delays. Must be tough to turn a profit.

After the sun comes up, the temperature quickly rises to the 60's and 70's.   The season is short, but in summer, quite a few people come here to escape the heat or to play in the snow.  In winter, Copper Mountain is a ski resort, which is its most popular season.  Golf is just a filler to keep tourists busy in the summer.

34/36 the last two mornings in La Pine, OR. Outside of Seneca it has to be one of the best places to maximize cooling in the west despite the fact it's less than 150 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Although Seneca is farther inland.

There was no frost here this morning because of cloud cover, but the snowline dropped to near timberline:

Looks lovely. Almost that time of year again.

Meanwhile, just your typical 110*F heat indices here in coastal Georgia.

They generally don't let you play until the frost has melted off the greens. It's too hard on the grass when it's frozen.

There are three stations near Copper Mountain on the Mesowest site but they are
not in cold air drainage areas. Fraser Flats is generally the coldest site in the
summer months, along with with the Jefferson CoAgMet site sometimes.

Stanley Idaho has some pretty crazy cold mins in the summer.

I know that this is a ski resort area and is obviously higher elevation, but does this area lie at the bottom of a valley or canyon surrounded by high mountains that lead to cold air drainage in the region making it colder than surrounding areas?
