Coldest September temp in at least 110 years, maybe more. Not just for the day, but for the entire month.
Intense Arctic cold descended into southern Alaska last week, setting a new all-time monthly Lowest Minimum Temperature.
According NOAA, the mercury plunged to -11.7 C (11 F) at Cordova Airport on Thursday, Sept 12, annihilating the previous record low of -6.7 C (20 F) set back in 1972.
This is the coldest temperature for the month of September ever recorded at the station since it began operating in 1909.
Cordova Airport sits at an elevation of 9.4 m (31 ft).
