I was just looking at the hourlies for BDL in 1943 and I think their official high of 0F maybe should have been -3F. It looks like they took the early 4z temp as the high instead of the 5z. I think we were on war time back then which was essentially a year round DST. So 4z would have been our local midnight, but not officially our standard 5z midnight.

Either way...lots of yore in these obs.

Is that when temperatures get low enough to become dangerous and cause real problems?

-35 is well into dangerous/causing problems territory....really you start seeing some car problems around -20F in my experience and it really ramps up colder than that. Of course, many people who live in rad pits in NNE will have batteries and other features that might add to the tolerance, but even those are gonna be tested by the time you get to -25 or -30F.

It's going to be a humanitarian crisis here in PWM Friday night/Saturday.  A lot of people are going to die in their sleep.

There are a number of compounding factors that have led to hundreds of unhoused spending nights outside this winter - new shelter opening delayed until March; covid & migrant funding for hotels to put these people up just ended in December.  Simply not enough bed space and so you have hundreds of people living in makeshift camps - woefully unprepared to endure a night like this.

You're absolutely right. And as you know, there's been a recent spate of unhoused deaths due to suspected foul play. Portland, like a lot of cities, has a real challenge on its hands - and a stretch like this will be very dangerous. I'd imagine that they're planning and mobilizing now.

-25 would require the windo to die off so I hope it doesn’t.  I’ve had 20 below both in Webster and Boscawen.

I had -20 two nights in a row in my old place, a good rad spot. Experienced -35 at the Mt Washington Hotel one valentine's day weekend. That cold hurt and did funny things with the coat I was wearing.

What about the warm, wet soil?  Won't there be latent heat release as that tries to freeze?

The top soil is mostly going to freeze in the few days prior to the real cold shot. It’s actually mid-winter climo cold this week after today and before the cold shot.
