How cold did it get?

Posted September 11th, 2012 by Bill Kardas. 35 comments

It was a chilly night indeed last night...cold enough for some frost in localized areas.  Here's a look at the overnight lows across the area:


Location Low
Inlet 31
Piseco 31
Forestport 32
Glenmore 33
Boonville 33
Cedarville 33
Point Rock 33
Steuben 34
Shenevus 34
Westdale 36
West Winfield 36
Dolgeville 36
Alder Creek 37
Hartwick 37
East Winfiedl 37
Richfield Spr. 38
Whitesboro 38
Rome 39
Fairfield 39
Verona 40

Ilion 40
South Utica 41
Bridgeport 41
Laurens 43

In order to get a freeze, temperatures need to drop to or below 32°.  We were several degrees safe from that this morning at Griffis.  The record low temperature for today's date is 35° set back in 1932. 

Here are some stats about the end of the growing season in the Mohawk Valley:  The earliest freeze to occur in the Mohawk Valley was September 20th,  1929.  The average date of our first freeze is October 8th.  The latest freeze of the season was November 7th, 1971.

Weather looks quiet going forward, with a massive area of high pressure firmly entrenched in the region.  Temperatures will warm back into the 80s later in the week.

    Wow, the latest freeze in 1971 was Nov. 7th!! That is almost hard to believe. I wonder what the winter was like that year?

  2. Bill Kardas (WKTV):

    Indeed! I was surprised to see that too! The winters of the 1970s were rough.

  3. (Westmo):

    36° for me.

    How would you know about the winters of the 1970’s Bill? You must have read about it right?

    One of the snowiest winters in this area was 1970-1971. I was a senior that year at Holland Patent, and we had a slew of half days and whole days off because of the snow. Utica had a seasonal snow total of 186.5” that year. Boonville’s total was way up there, but I can’t remember what it was. The greatest depth of snow on the ground in Boonville was on 3/11/1971 of 80”. I snowmobiled well into April that year.

    I lived in Westernville, NY during 1971 – 1972
    and I recorded a snowpack of 26” on 7 April. I measured 45” during the period 3 – 5 Feb.
    1972…approx 10” of that was synopic snow that fell during the morning of 3 Feb.

    Why are cities generally warmer or cooler than the more rural areas near them?
