Tri-Cities Low Temperatures Starting to Break Records

Posted: Updated:

TRI-CITIES, Wash-- Our low temperatures are starting to break records. Tuesday was the coldest December 16th ever in the Tri-Cities at six-below.

It seems like it couldn't get any colder outside, but it has been much worse.

"It was cold like this about seven years ago for one winter," said a cold Tri-Citian.

The coldest temperature on record in the Tri-Cities dates back to December 13th 1919 when it was -29 degrees. The second coldest day was on January 21st, 1930 and it was -27 degrees.

We probably won't get that low but another arctic outbreak is coming our way this weekend.

"When we were here in the 80's there was more snow, lots more snow. The city wasn't ready for it then. There was no snow plows or anything like that," said Pat Logan, whose seen worse winters.
