102-Year-Old Record Cold Broken In San Antonio, USA
San Antonio reached a low of 23 degrees at the airport this morning, which tied for the fourth-coldest November low temperature on record. The only colder temperatures were recorded in 1976 and 1886, and both were later in the month.
The cold weather also broke daily records on Tuesday and Wednesday.
“This shatters the old record low of 28 degrees set back in 1916,” the National Weather Service tweeted of Wednesday’s weather. Tuesday night just before midnight, the city hit 28 degrees, breaking the previous record of 29 set in 1907, records show.
Typically, November temperatures are significantly warmer. The average high for the month is about 71 degrees and the normal low is 51 degrees. San Antonio’s average low this year has been comparable to other years, but its average high, a cool 66.6 degrees, has been lower than normal.
Temperatures are forecast to sink again overnight Wednesday heading into Thursday with a forecast low of 33 Thursday morning, meteorologists said. Temperatures are then expected to climb steadily through Saturday before a cold front comes in Sunday bringing rain chances and more cool weather.
