Walllll, boyz 'n grilz....... It is still August, albeit barely, and at 0645 here, the temperature is..... +18ºF / -8ºC Now, later I'll have to paw through my records. We have been a NWS recording station since the mid-1970s, but I am pretty sure that is an all-time low for the month of August. Paxson occasionally has the lowest temperature record for North America. Invariably that is in early-mid autumn, when farther north in Alaska and Canada the lower elevations than where we are high in the mountains don't get the brisk temps that we see; as winter deepens we'll never get the Martian numbers they can have. At least once, I think it was early October, we had a global-wide low of -29ºF (possibly ex-Antarctica, although at that time they're in summer). Cold!
