Roswell, New Mexico Drops Down To -29°F On February 13, 1905.


Id Bet More Than One Person Felt This Way In Roswell, NM On The Morning Of Feb 13, 1905.

(-29°F On February 13, 1905 - A Record That Still Stands 111 Years Later).








Roswell Daily Record February 14, 1905.





Very few National Weather Service Climate Co-Op weather stations were operating in southeastern New Mexico in February 1905. In June of 1905 a station was opened up in Artesia but too late to record the extreme cold noted earlier in the year.

So based on public reports as well as local climatology records the thermometer has dropped to thirty below zero twice in our known history (1893-2016). The first time was on February 13, 1905 and the second occurrence was on Feb 8, 1933. 

Reported Low Temperatures Feb 13, 1905-

Roswell -29°F
(Public reported temperatures as low as -32°F).
 Arabela -24°F
Carlsbad -5°F
Fort Stanton -3°F
Elk -1°F

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
