Weather, You Like it Or Not...

With another blast of cold frigid arctic air blanketing the area, some people might wonder if this is the coldest temperatures we've ever seen. Well that answer would be no....for now ! According to the New York State Climate Office, housed at Cornell University, minus 29 degrees (in 1995) was the coldest temperature ever recorded in Utica.

The State Climate Office has all sorts of weather related data that you can see based on city location. The page on Utica shows the historic temperatures, precipitation, and snowfall by month. Take a look at the Utica records, or any of the other major cities in New York State by visiting the Climate Office website.

And while I'm not sure about the rest of the country, all I know is that when I turned on the shower this morning, it snowed for the first 10 minutes ! THAT'S COLD !
