The National Weather Service in Mobile, Alabama reported on Twitter that the gulf coast region was recently hit by a strong cold snap, and that event set several new low temperature records. The NWS tweeted:
It’s been chilly…How chilly? Record breaking chilly! Temperatures last night dropped way below normal and several records fell. Here are a few stations and how they stacked up to their record lows!
Additionally, the NWS provided a graph of “departures from normal” for many locations with the average low temperature departure being about 20 degrees below normal.
In a separate Tweet, they added:
Well we broke another record here at MOB. However, unlike earlier in the month this one was a record low temperature. We snuck down to 29 last night which broke the old record set back 100 years ago to the day in 1923. Pensacola tied their record of 30 degrees.
