However, at the Jackson Weather Office and the London Corbin Airport, the streak lives on.  At Jackson, the longest streak of consecutive days at freezing or below since records began in 1981 stands at 11.  Two such streaks exist, one ending on December 26, 1989, and the other ending on January 4, 2001.  At London, where records exist back to 1954, the record also stands at 11 days, ending on December 26, 2009.

With a reinforcing shot of cold air arriving overnight and this morning, it appears that another day will be added to our current streaks at Jackson and London, making it 11 consective days at freezing or below.  The streak should end on tomorrow though as current indications are that both stations will inch above the freezing mark.
