The last "chilling" Halloween was in 2002. The day started out at a balmy 20 degrees, with a dusting of snow covering the ground. The weather through the day would not fair much better with cloudy skies keeping the cold weather in place across the city, with only a meager 4 degrees of warming taking place through the daylight hours. That evening a cold freezing drizzle and snow mixture would blanket the area, making for a slippery trek across the neighborhood. In 1991, there was 6 inches of snow on the ground at 5 am that morning, with an additional 1.2 inches falling that day. The mercury rose to a high of only 29 degrees, and dipped to a record low for that day of 10 degrees. Another cold Halloween was in 1972 when the day started off with a trace of snow on the ground with a record 13.8 inches of snow falling during the day. The temperature only rose to a high of 25 degrees...which is the record lowest maximum temperature for that day...with a low reading of 17 degrees.
