The past six mornings have been downright cold in Fresno with lows at or below the freezing point.
The stretch of frosty weather began on Friday, January 11 with a low of 31-degrees and continued through the weekend and into Wednesday, January 16 with a low of 31-degrees.
The lowest temp in Fresno during that time happened Monday, January 14 when the mercury dipped to 28-degrees.
But as long and cold as this stretch of freezing weather has felt it's no where near Fresno's record for consecutive morning lows at or below 32-degrees.
Folks who were in Fresno during January of 1947 shivered through 21 days straight of freezing of sub-freezing morning low temperatures.
That's the longest streak on record.
The next longest cold spell happened just a few years ago in January of 2007 when Fresno had lows at or below freezing for 19 consecutive days.
The freezing weather is almost over and a warming trend is on the way that will send temperatures 5 to 10-degrees above seasonal normals through the weekend.
And take heart, summer's sweltering heat will be here before you know it and we'll all think back fondly to the "Big Chill" of January 2013!
