Record cold temperatures throughout the South

More Record Cold on the Way

AUGUSTA, Ga. - More record cold air is forecast this weekend. We expect a low temperature near 21 degrees Saturday morning and near 19 degrees Sunday morning. Records are as follows:

November 22, 20 degrees (2000) - Our forecast: 21
November 23, 21 degrees (1956) - Our forecast: 19

This cold air follows in the wake of record cold recorded Wednesday morning. Augusta Bush Field, the area's official weather observation location, dipped to 22 degrees Wednesday morning. This easily shattered the previous record low for the date of 25 degrees set back in 1959.

Record Low Set on Grandfather Mountain Wednesday

Unseasonably cold weather broke the record for the daily low temperature on Wednesday atop Grandfather Mountain.

The temperature dipped to eight degrees early in the morning breaking the previous daily low record for November 19th was 10 degrees set, and was set back in 1968.

Gainesville set another record for low temperatures early Thursday when the official thermometer at the airport hit 29 degrees. The previous low temperature record for this date was 30 degrees and was set in 1968.

Alarmists Still Heated Even As World Cools

"It's been a bad year for global warming alarmists. Record cold periods and snowfalls are occurring around the globe. The hell that the radicals have promised is freezing over.

As the British House of Commons debated a climate-change bill that pledged the United Kingdom to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 80% by 2050, London was hit by its first October snow since 1922...."

Cold, Hard Facts

"Despite record snows and low temperatures around the world last month, a major Al Gore supporter says October was the hottest on record. The only thing being cooked here is not the Earth, but the books...."

Global warming numbers get a little help from their friends

"Last week, the Goddard Institute for Space Studies – one of four agencies responsible for monitoring the global temperatures used by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – released its statistics for October. According to the GISS figures, last month was the warmest October on record around the world.

"This struck some observers as odd. There had been no reports of autumn heat waves in the international press and there is almost always blanket coverage of any unusually warm weather since it fits into the widespread media bias that climate catastrophe lies just ahead. In fact, quite the opposite had occurred; there had been plenty of stories about unseasonably cool weather...."

The world has never seen such freezing heat

"A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming. On Monday, Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore's chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record....
