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.
