Now, high temperatures have slumped back into the 50's for the 19th and 20th, which had many asking if this was close to record-breaking coldest highs. Thankfully, we have the perspective that it could have always been colder. The coldest highs for May 20th were in the mid to upper 40's (Fig. 3). The forecasted overnight low for tonight is 43°, which means another chilly night, but this is still at least 10° warmer than the record coldest lows near 30° (Fig. 4).
With temperature swings, we rock back and forth between one extreme to another, which means a warm-up is in our future- just in time for Memorial Day Weekend to be exact (great timing, Mother Nature).
