Flint Sets Records For Cold and Snow In First Storm of the Season
The early winter weather that swept through Flint this week has left a record setting mark on our area.
Not only did the Veteran's Day storm set a snow fall record, but Tuesday we saw a low temperature record broken. The old snowfall record for was 3 inches, set back in 1933. The 8.6 inches of snow that fell in Flint on Monday will be a hard record to break. Burton and Lapeer both saw more than 9 inches of snow.
The previous cold temperature record was 15 degrees, set in 1997. This week the low on Tuesday was 6 degrees, and I hope we never see this record broken.
The cold weather isn't completely gone, but by the weekend we should be back to normal temps. There have been quite a few different forecasts, but if November is any clue as to how our winter will go, this is going to be a tough one.
