Update - December 19, 2008:
Seattle Times - Sometime before 4 a.m., the mercury at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport dipped to 19 degrees, beating the record low of 20 degrees set for this day, 44 years ago. And the cold isn't over yet.
Examaner.com - The cold continues to hang on and, in the process, Denver managed to set one record and tie another in the last 24 hours. This is of course on top of the two records set before that.
CBS News - Some of the sharpest cold Tuesday was in northern Minnesota, where Hibbing bottomed out at 32 below zero and International Falls dropped to 28 below. In the middle of the state, St. Cloud fell to 24 below, breaking its old record of 21 below set in 1963.
Lethbridge Herald - With much of Western Canada in a deep freeze, Lethbridge reached a record low of -34.4 C about 6 a.m. Monday, according to Environment Canada. That beats the old record of -32.8 set on the same date in 1964.
Associated Press - The Texas Panhandle had lows in the single digits, and Goodland, Kan., registered a record low of minus 10.
ABC15 News - One meteorologist examined the forecast models and said he knows they're due for a winter storm sometime this year. "The type we may be dealing with will be ranked up there with the known years before 1950, which set record low daytime temperatures into the forecast region." Kevin Martin of OWSweather.com said. "With this, may come low elevation snow."
He added that temperatures in Siberia, Russia will be -81 degrees this week. "With those types of temperatures the arctic air mass has to spill somewhere."
Bloomberg - Las Vegas received 3.6 inches of snow yesterday, breaking the record for the biggest snowfall for December since official records began in 1937, according to the National Weather Service.
