Only 18 here. Wind kept going all night. Cold but not frigid.

My suspicion is a bit of Downsloping because my wind has been more westerly than northwesterly. I’ll be curious to see where we max because I’m hard pressed to believe it stays under freezing now but maybe.

Low of 14.5 for me.  23.4 at 11:20a.  

Largest gust since midnight: 11.4mph.

Might make it to just freezing today, but we'll see.  

 

 

 

It's 29 here but seems to have stopped rising.  Don't think we crack freezing

Topped at 27.3 today.  I enjoy winter weather, but I'm ready for a warm-up.  

This wind has been worse tonight than last night here.. wind chill hovering between 0 and 5.

14. Sort of ready for this warm up - just wish it wasn’t wet! 
 

looks like the pattern reloads and delivers the second week of Feb. It’ll be a race against time with the sun angle changing but one of these days Feb is going to deliver again. Why not this year?

You must have been close enough to the lake to get the warm water influence. Just a thought....

I’ve been wondering the same for me since we moved to our new place. I was in a cold sink in rural Burke County but we moved into a new place about 200-300 yards back from the water and it stays significantly warmer at night here.

So, I was wrong. I assumed the low was around 16 (and I just ballparked it), because that was the temp when I checked close to 8 AM. Based on your comments above, I went back to verify and found the actual low was 11.8 F at 6:44 AM. So, almost single digits, but not quite.

As far as my distance from Lake Hickory, I am somewhere between 1 and 1.5 miles away, as the crow flies, from the nearest point to me on the southern shore of the lake. I wonder if concrete and asphalt have a greater effect on my temperature than does the lake itself.
