YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – For two days in a row now, we will have record low temperatures for this time of the year.
The bitterly cold temperatures into Saturday morning are record-breaking in several ways.
First, the record low for Friday was broken as temperatures dropped below 16° through late evening. That record had been around since 1991.
The record for Saturday is 21°, which was set in 1957 — a record now shattered.
Another statistic that really stands out is we have not dropped below 13° in recorded history this early in the season. These records date back to 1897 in the Youngstown area.
The cold air filtering into our region is impressive, considering it isn’t even winter yet!
