    Default Coldest place in the US right now

    I've been digging around on this link [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] the last few day at various locations across the northern parts of the US including Alaska, and I was surprised to find that the coldest reading (consistently as of lately) has been a place called Delhi NY, which is located in the western Catskill Mountains of NYS. I was surprised to see that they have had some below zero readings lately. At first I thought it was an error, but it appears accurate as nearby locations like Walton NY and other close places are similar. Meanwhile Fairbanks Alaska, northern Maine, locations in the northwest Rockies like Montana and Wyoming, are coming in considerably warmer. I found some temps in the Adirondack Mountains of NY that got down to with about 10 or 15 degrees of Delhi, but everything else I found was at a good twenty degrees or more warmer than that. The other night Delhi recorded 8 below zero at around midnight beating anything by a long shot (except other locations in the nearby area) that I could find. I'm curious what might be colder at this point in the year. I'm sure that as winter sets in, weather patterns change, and large bodies of water get colder and freeze, that you'll see a lot of places get much colder than that on a consistent basis, but for now (right now as of mid December) what's the coldest you know of in the US. Just curious! records have it that a place called rogers Pass Mt. Has the coldest recording of 70 below in the continental US. I know Alaska beat it but I forgot what it was. Right now for some odd reason, NYS has been coming up with the coldest temps that I could find.

    It got down to minus 7 here last week with a high of 11 above. We missed the record by only a couple degrees. AlGore was right, it is just too hot!

    Ma had it at 5 degrees the other night in Datil, NM. She's at 7400' in the Rockies. It's warmer today but she's gotten 4" of snow since this morning

    It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings.
    Where there's service, there is someone being served.
    The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

    Not surprised! I didn't check any of the higher points in the southwest but I know that it can get really cold there also. I guess there are some hidden interior spots that are far away from large bodies of water that have dipped like Luvs2 play was talking about. I'm guessing that the large bodies of water that influence our climate are not cold enough to have the effect that they'll have later in the winter. I know we feel it more along the coast here after the ocean maxs out with cold temps sometime in March. It might not show in the actual readings but it will cause more snow over rain and feel a lot colder and more raw. I just hate the heat and will take the cold. As long as the bugs are all dead, I'm happy

    Coach, were you part of the snow that dropped the trees and powerlines? I have a couple friends out there who could be millionaires from all the work they got.

    No sir. I have property just to the south and just to the north of where it all hit. I drove through the area after the main roads were all plowed and had no problems from it. We got about 8 inches in our northern location the day before Thanksgiving, but that big storm that you're talking about was a little to the south of me. We also had ice on the pond way upstate. A friend of mine in northern NJ (where I used to live) got slammed hard. They had a lot of downed trees and lost power for about a week. Trouble was that the leaves had not yet fallen and the trees with leaves couldn't take the weight. a little bit of a freak of nature because we usually don't see any significant snow in NJ until the leaves are gone after Thanksgiving, but some times momma nature comes up with a different program. Like a guy I once knew in Wyoming said: "only fools and newcomers try to predict the weather" It has a way of reminding us that we should never assume too much when it comes to weather and other issues involving nature. Think your safe from bears or something else that's dangerous? You never know where these creatures will turn up. We had a bear once in the late 60's turn up in Suburban northern NJ only about 10 miles west of New York City. Know one really knows how it found its way in but it did. The local PD had to put em down with a rifle and it was then removed by way of tow truck that the local PD contracted to remove cars from accident scenes. All kinds of speculation on that incident. The best theory to explain it was that it worked it way down out of the Ramapo Mountains that are located just to the north and then really got his tail lost in the wrong hood and couldn't find his way out. There is some public park land that works it way down along creeks and rivers in the area that might of provided a way in for the bear, but know one really knows for sure except the fact that it did make to the suburbs. Point is that you never know when it comes to nature?

    As of midnight 12/5 St. Agatha Maine was down to 9 above. Anyone know of a colder place in the US at the moment?
