Unbelieveably cold in USA & Canada

Temperatures have dropped to -46 degrees celsius in parts of the USA this morning as a major arctic blast covers the north and east. 

We thought we’d share this morning’s lowest temperatures with you.   The temperatures below are in fahrenheit so we’ve provided a very easy calculator that you can right click on and open in another screen… however when you start getting into the -30s and 40s there isn’t a big difference between F & C.

This might make you appreciate this morning’s warmth here in NZ!

New state record?: Extreme northern parts of Maine fell into the mid-to-upper 40s below zero this morning and one location, Big Black River, bottomed out at -50 degrees!

The state record low is -48 degrees at Van Buren, Maine, set way back on January 19, 1925. It is possible that Big Black River may have set a new state record. Below is a map of Big Black River’s location.
