Record Cold Almost Everywhere

Tuesday, December 7, 2010 afternoon temperatures

So you want to avoid this early blast of arctic cold and you’re think of heading south…say, the Carolinas, or Florida, or Hawaii?  Better think again.  The deep freeze invaded the deep south here on the mainland, and record lows were even measured in Hawaii!

Record Low Temperatures for December 7th:
Charlotte, NC:   12
Florence, SC:   17
Vero Beach, FL:   31
West Palm Beach, FL:   36 (ties record low, high of 59 set a record for coldest high temperature on Dec. 7th)
Fort Lauderdale, FL:   40 (high of 58 set a record for coldest high temperature on Dec. 7th)
Naples, FL:   39 (high of 59 set a record for coldest high temperature on Dec. 7th)
Kahului, HI:   55
Hilo, HI:   60

By the way, as far as the cold goes, the low for the continental U.S. on Tuesday was 19 below zero at International Falls, MN and that was not even close to a record low! The coldest December 7th at International Falls was back in 1908 when the temperature plunged to -32!

There was, however, one spot in the United States where the cold did not prevail…if you want warmth, head for the desert southwest. Indio, Ca was the nation’s hot spot with a high of 83 and Thermal, CA was not far behind, checking with a high of 81.
