Well this likely comes as no shock to many but January 2014 was very cold in Charlotte. It was also very cold across the eastern half of the country. I have some amazing stats to share with you on the cold of this past month. Hopefully this will put this past deep freeze into to perspective for you.
Here’s a look at the entire month readings at Charlotte Douglas. We spent most of out time below average especially the 1st 10 days and the last 10 days of the month.
Here’s a look at where this January ranks All-Time for Charlotte. Our record book goes back 136 years to 1878. IF you notice this year will be the coldest since the record holder from January 1977.
