Mount Washington hits all-time record high temp for January

Source: Associated Press

The January thaw in New England has even reached New Hampshire's Mount Washington, which recorded the all-time warmest temperature ever for the month.

Margaret Curtis from the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, says the temperature at the Mount Washington observatory hit 48 degrees at 6 a.m. Sunday, making New England's tallest mountain warmer than Phoenix and San Diego for a brief spell.

The previous record warmth for the month atop Mount Washington was 47 set on Jan. 20, 1995.

Curtis says temperatures will begin cooling across the region to more seasonable temperatures starting Monday, with the possibility of a shot of extreme cold Friday into Saturday.

8. Hell froze over in AZ

Meanwhile here in PHX we have a hard freeze warning, and overnight temps in the low 20's where we are for four days running. Not bad for a place that reaches 118 degrees in August!
