A New Record Low!

westover lowSPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) We have a new record low this morning. (February 12th)  The temperature fell to -15 at The Westover Air Reserve Base, where the official temperatures are kept, breaking the old record of -13 set back in 1962.

We only missed the record low of -19, for the month of February (5th on 1996) by 4 degrees! Every official observation sight across western Mass. fell below zero this morning. This morning was the fourth morning out of the last six mornings that featured sub-zero readings. Hang in there, temperatures will be climbing fast today, and with light winds and lots of sunshine it will feel more comfortable this afternoon. In fact, it will be rather pleasant with highs in the upper 20′s.  Stay warm! Dan Brown
