Florida Freeze and The 20 Below Club

Deep snow covering much of New England helped to produce frigid temperatures across upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine with several spots entering the 20 below club, including:

Whitefield, NH: -26
Fryeburg, ME: -25
Canton, NY: -25
Saranac Lake, NY: -24
Berlin, NH: -20

Meanwhile, the strong high pressure system helping to deliver the cold deep into the southern United States set a record for sea level barometric pressure at Tallahassee, FL with a reading of 30.77″ this morning.

Record low temperatures for January 3rd included:

Bridgeport, CT: 9
JFK Airport, NY: 14
Monroe, LA: 18
Fort Myers, FL: 32
Naples, FL: 34
Fort Lauderdale, FL: 39
Miami Beach, FL: 40

It will be another frigid night in the mid Atlantic and northeastern U.S. but the big weather headlines will now shift west where a series of powerful Pacific storms will slam into Washington, Oregon and California. Hurricane force winds and several feet of snow are likely in the highest elevations while flooding rains are possible in the lower elevations. That western storm will track east and pump mild air into the eastern U.S. over the weekend.
