Record cold hits Hamilton

Climate News: Ontario, Canada

March 06, 2007
HAMILTON (AM900 CHML) - It was downright cold this morning.
In fact, we set a new record here in Hamilton.
A reading of -22 at 7 o'clock this morning at John C Munro International Airport was good enough to smash the old record of -19.4 which stood since 1960.
The record comes as we get word that February was the coldest on record since 1979.
As proof, not a single drop of rain fell last month, which has happened only once previously since record keeping began.


MASSACHUSETTS -USA- At the Taunton office of the National Weather Service at 11 a.m. it was 3 degrees above zero with a wind child of about 20 degrees below zero. The temperature at midnight was 16 degrees which is the March 6 RECORD FOR THE LOWEST MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE FOR THE DATE. The record low maximum temerature for the month of March is 10 degrees, set on March 3, 1950. With a high temperature of 9 degrees predicted for the rest of the day, today will rival that record even though it won't show in the record book because the high temperature was recorded at midnight. "Certainly, today is the coldest March day since 1950".

CONNECTICUTT - USA-Tuesday's high temperature was below 20 degrees - for JUST THE THIRD TIME IN NEARLY A CENTURY. That's about 25 to 30 degrees below average temperatures for this time in March. The state's record low high temperature for the month of March at Windsor Locks is 17 degrees on March 7, 1913, and March 18, 1967.
