GYX, Portland has already dropped to 7°, and that high temp record should get crushed.  Interesting side note, the previous record from 1972 occurred in a very strong El Niño.  Food for thought. I posted in the El Niño thread that Bridgton, Maine saw >6" of snow on Nov 15 in both 1972 and 1997, very strong-super Niños, this year 6 inches fell on Nov 16.  :classic_smile:

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/...
At 07z...a 972 millibar low centered south of Greenland with a
1037 millibar high centered north of Lake superior. Between
these two systems a gusty northwest wind continues with some
upslope clouds noted on GOES infrared imagery along with a few
snow showers. There were a few cloud streamers and flurries noted
downwind of the mountains...but this activity was beginning to
dissipate as drier air continues to flood in. For today...record
cold airmass with gusty northwest winds producing advisory level wind
chills in the mountains through mid morning. Otherwise...a
bitter cold day with wind chills averaging from zero to 15 below
zero before winds begin to diminish with relaxing pressure
gradient late today. Now for the records today...

Location/ record cold high temperature/ record low temperature

Portland  / 29 in 2008                   / 13 in 1972
Augusta   / 25 in 2008                   /  9 in 1978
Concord   / 25 in 2008                   /  5 in 1972
Manchester/ 25 in 2008                   / 13 in 1951

As you can see...today is shaping up to be a real turkey in the
temperature department and one for the record books.

Odd feeling walking on the lawn today, almost felt like a dream. The ground was solid! First time that has happened in a while.

I had been expecting a major squall yesterday, but our NWS began to express doubts about it. There were some moderate snow showers in Newark Valley, NY (about 20 miles WNW of Binghamton), but they are on the cusp of the snowbelt. Here in Endwell, it was a routine frontal passage with barely a dusting of snow. We actually had a more impressive, random, squall late yesterday afternoon. The official temperature on the hilltop was still in the thirties as late as noon. A radio deejay (around 3:30) was saying that the temperature was plummeting. She then said it was 30 degrees. I'd say it has been a gradual drop-off. I wrote this yesterday and thought I had posted it, but better late than never.

Temperatures began to drop off rapidly after I had written this. It reached 12 by midnight, and then a record-breaking 7 above by dawn. The old record for Nov. 22 was 10 in 1989. It was also our coldest November day in 42 years, since 11/30/76--our all-time coldest November day at 3 degrees. Can we approach that tonight or early tomorrow? Stay tuned.

Ugh, 1972-73 and 1997-98 were absolutely terrible winters in my area so I don't like to see comparisons to those years brought up lol! Further south here in Pittsburgh, it's chilly and won't get out of the 20's today, but this isn't exactly rare or unusual to happen here for Thanksgiving once in awhile, as in Thanksgiving 2013, it was 29 and 17 for the high and low. Low was a relatively mild 21 thanks to clouds. Also, back in 2014 on 11/18, we had a day with a high of 21 and a low of 14, so we're not even really close to that for today.

We had our all-time coldest November minimum this morning, when we fell to an even zero degrees. We beat the all-time airport record of 3 above by 3 degrees. This cold snap was as anomalous as an 80-degree high would be on the other extreme because 77 degrees (3 shy of 80) is the warmest we have ever been in November in airport history. Before last year, we had a 12-year drought of even making it to zero in December

The last time we fell to zero in December was 12/31/17

The last time we fell to zero in January was Jan. 15 of this year.

The last time we fell to zero in February was on 2/15/16.

The last time we made it to zero in March was on 3/6/15.

So now, we have made it to zero during each of the five coldest months of the year.

Friday morning had a low of 14.  I saw Millersville, PA about 25 miles away broke a 104 year old record for November 23rd.  Previous record was 14 in 1914 and Friday morning Millersville got down to 12.

Beautiful day today.  Sunny with temp in the 50s.  I love the snow and I love the cold but I don't like neither when trying to put up outside Christmas lights.  Today was a good day to do that.  I put some up Friday but my hands were freezing.
