Recommended Posts

Today marks the 11th full day since we dipped below freezing at 3PM on Christmas Day. Assuming we stay below freezing through Sunday - we would be tied for the 3rd longest such streak since record keeping began back in 1894. If somehow we stay sub 32 on Monday we would be tied for 2nd all-time - not too shabby!

Below are the all-time streaks of 10 days or more below 32 degrees:

Update: we did indeed remain below freezing today in Chester County PA with a high of 26.4...therefore have now moved into a tie for the 2nd longest sub-32 streak in the 125 year Chester County Pa database at 14 consecutive days. The only longer streak January 19, 1961 through February 3, 1961 at 16 days. I am somewhat surprised and impressed by this cold spell as many have opined that such a below normal stretch would be unlikely with the current state of climate change. Whether you are a believer or a denier like me....this has been an impressive cold stretch!

Great info!!!

I have loved every minute of this amazing stretch...here in Three Tuns PA, we have been below 32° since 2:30pm Christmas Day...I'll be sorry for it to end tomorrow!! OCNJ's streak ended today after being below freezing since Dec. 26!

We just went above freezing here in NW Chesco for the 1st time since 2:52pm on Christmas Day - ending a streak of 14 days 18 hours and 26 minutes or 354 hours and 26 minutes to be exact.
