Several Record Lows Broken or Tied This Morning, August 17, 2012

Several locations around the area broke or tied their record lows this morning, as a cool airmass passed through the region. NOTE: Sites marked with (COOP) use Cooperative Observations for official temperature records, even if airport observations are available. This is due to a longer period of record which has been established by the Cooperative Observers.  More information on the Cooperative Observer Program is available at http://www.crh.noaa.gov/fsd/?n=coopprogram#General
