Cold snap sets records

From Local Sources

JASPER — The blast of arctic air earlier this week set two November daily low temperature records in the City of Jasper.

The city’s weather readings go from midnight to midnight so the recorded low Tuesday of 13 degrees set a Nov. 12 record for Jasper. The previous record low for that date was 19 degrees, set in 1960.

Jasper’s low of 10 degrees Wednesday set a Nov. 13 record. The previous low for that date was 18 degrees, set in 1968.

The city’s warmest Nov. 12 and 13? That would be the 73 degrees enjoyed on Nov. 12, 2005, and the 71 degrees recorded on Nov. 13 in 1958 and again in 1964.

Jasper’s weather records for today are a high of 80 degrees on Nov. 14, 1955, and a low of 24 degrees on this date in 1963.
