U.S. Breaks or Ties 355 Daily Lowest Min Temperature Records December 1 – 6

Jordan, Montana set a daily record-low temperature of -41ºC (minus 42 degrees Fahrenheit) for December 7, as Arctic weather gripped much of the United States on Saturday, after a deadly winter storm cut power to hundreds of thousands of people in Texas and Arkansas, made roads impassable and grounded thousands of flight.

Some 298 records were Broken and 57 others tied between 1 and 6 December 2013, according to the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in Asheville, N.C.

The deadly ice storm has been described as the worst winter storm to strike the U.S. in years.

Texas governor declared a State of Disaster in 143 counties across the state on Thursday, due to “the imminent threat of disaster.”

States of Emergency were declared in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Tennessee ahead of the ice storm.

Minnesota declared Snow Emergency in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Other cities also proclaimed emergencies including Crystal, West St. Paul, Plymouth, St. Paul, Robbinsdale, Mendota Heights, Bloomington, Minneapolis and St. Louis Park.

  • The storm has been battering much of the US, killing at least a dozen people.
  • The storm cut power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses  in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Tennessee Thursday and Friday, and forced about 2,000 flight cancellation on Friday alone.
  • The authorities closed thousands of schools from Texas to Wisconsin.
