January 2013 Hourly Temperature Chart

This past January saw a temperature spread of 83F degrees here on the summit; with the coldest day being on the 23rd, with a low of 35F degrees below zero, and the warmest being 48F degrees above zero on the 13th.

During the month, the previous monthly record high of 47F degrees above zero was broken on the 13th, with a temperature of 48F degrees above zero. Three new daily records were also set, and two daily records were equaled. The records that were equaled and broken were the result of two warm fronts that passed through the region.

The day the summit reached 35F degree below zero, while cold, was still 12 degrees warmer than the all-time record low temperature of 47F degrees below zero set on January 29th, 1934.
