It was the latest in the season that the temperature had fallen to 10ºF or colder since 1953.
The highs for the day were low 40s, and some areas even saw snow.
And the temperature is still falling…

As the week progresses, temperatures should rise gradually, into the 60s on Friday and through the weekend, before rising again into the 70s on Tuesday.
It’s not all bad news, as the cold snap has brought feet of snow to nearby ski resorts as they begin to finish out their seasons.
