Long lasting intense Cold for New England

They had a high of 14F on new year’s. They also had a 14F in Feb 2016. The coldest max at the airport site going back to 1948 is 12F. So it doesn’t get much colder than this.

Word... so that is pretty impressive.

Car thermo was down to -11f this a.m. in Killingly.  Took a pic at-9f.  Not sure how accurate those temps were.   Shot of Alexander's Lake. Check out all of the swirls in the snow from the wind.  Great stuff.

Up to 6F now after a low of -23F.

Feels amazing out.  This is like that first 50F dayin March.

Ohhhhh that sounds sooooooooooo good. Full snow pack, cold night, nice groom, sun warms it all up, base lots booming. People cooking burgers and dogs, snow nice and slushy and soft. Damnit that sounds like heaven.

If you want an interesting night or 2 away, and you really want to be alone, but still close to civilization rent a place on Prudence.  Just be wary of the deer and tick possibilities.

Was in Portsmouth this weekend for a wake. Wife and family used to spend the summers on Prudence Island. We're thinking of taking the ferry over one weekend this summer. It was -1.4F for a low at my inlaws on East Main road. First and only time I can remember going below zero on the island.

Yeah. Must be nasty down there with the wind and cold off the water.  I went to school at Roger Williams and I always remember the winters being non eventful except for the March Super Storm of 93.  Even that one tainted at the end making the snow totals less than expected.  I used to have friends over at Common Fence Point and I remember nasty winds ...even there, not opened to the south of the bay.  I do remember coming back to visit while living in DC....winter of 94 I think it was where Newport got hammered with snow.  Cars burried for days.

Currenlty 30.9 with a fresh (almost) inch of snow.  8th day with measurable snow so far this season.  No huge pack, but it's been a great start to winter so far.

Wow. about 8" More than me.  I didn't realize there were more sizable hits down there this year.
Nice.

Heh...30.9 is the temp.  Only 22.1" for snow.  Guess I should have made that first sentence more clear.

for 0' elevation we do wind right (sailing anyone?), one of the coldest spots around is naval station newport where the wind carry's the entire length of the bay unobstructed, damn cold with the wind over the water. 

yeah we don't get below zero often, coldest i remember is Feb 15 , -8

Would be even more impressive if the endpoints were 12/27 and 1/7.

Today was my first above-zero morning since 12/26.  For those 13 days, my average temp was 7/-17, and 22° BN.  Sunday's low of -20 was modest for here, especially after Saturday's max of -5.  I'm guessing the wind continued long enough (or re-started pre-dawn, as temps rose 3-7 AM) to spike another -30s morning.

Yeah, RAD cooling FTL, If the wind had fallen off i think we would have done better, I see IZG was -26°F, We had colder nights in the last 10 days then what i had last night here.

Right.  My Sunday low of -20 looks less impressive after the 5 days 12/29-1/2 averaged -25.  (-31,-25,-18,-24,-27)
