All-Time Record Oregon Low Temps
Just for fun, here is a 20 year look back at record lows for Oregon from 1989-2009. There are a few conclusions one might draw from this data --- 1. "The truly historic arctic blasts (ie: Feb 1989 & Dec 1990) are becoming a thing of the past", or, 2. "We have just experienced the two coldest back-to-back years since 1989 & 1990 (20 years)." I guess it all depends on whether your glass is half full or half empty. Either way, enjoy these numbers. With a little more time, perhaps I will send out the years prior to 1989 just for fun? There will most certainly be some very cold ones in that data set.
1989 = -48 Seneca 12/6
