Apparently, the COOP at Daniel Fish Hatchery in Wyoming hit -34. This would be the new official state record for WY for October. Any thoughts on this reading, Chris or Scott? It seems probable. This station averages a minimum of -4 in January so it is a very cold location.

It does seem a bit cold for the location (nearby Big Piney is usually colder and hit "only" -26), but it could be possible.    If it is valid, the reading is incredible and is almost as cold as January's record.

To be fair, this station has only existed since 1989 and January has been a stinker in the current era. This station hit -50 on 12/22/1990 - I am sure January has seen -50 at that location in past decades...
