Inn Of The Mountain Gods, Ruidoso, NM - Dec 30th, 2018.
It was just a tad chilly this morning with most of the valley locations reporting lows in the teens and 20's. The Arteisa Climate Co-Op Station came in with a low of 18ºF, Carlsbad Airport 21ºF, and the Roswell Airport 19ºF. Here at our home in Carlsbad I dipped down to 23ºF.
On this date in 1971 Prospect Creek, Alaska plunged to -80ºF to establish the coldest official temperature ever recorded in the United States.
