As usual, you have scooped the local TV weather people. I don't think anyone caught the fact that this was the latest date for a minus 1 since 1934, not to mention the first sub zero in February since 1963. Great facts! Thanks.

PS: re 1979, I do remember that "lows below 10" streak. I spent a couple of nights helping a friend move into an apartment in Ridgewood Queens/Brooklyn (long before it was hip)and it was bitter. Was that anywhere close to a record of most consecutive days with lows below 10?

Thanks again.

Hi Ken, I was completely surprised by this cold snap. When I went to bed Saturday night (actually it was in the wee hours of Sunday AM) the temperature was +5 so I assumed the temperature would drop maybe a few more degrees, at most, since it had been at 5 or 6 since 10PM. Never did I think it would fall to -1!

And to answer your question, 1979's streak is the longest such streak on record.

also in 2016, the low in Boston Logan International Airport in Massachusetts plunged to -9°, its fourth coldest temperature on record and its coldest temp since January 15, 1957 when the low was -12°. weather records for Boston have been kept since 1936.
