Coldest Since 1998! Post Your Lows

Portland Airport just recorded it’s coldest temperature in 11 years. The wind briefly dropped off, allowing the temp to touch 14 degrees! The last time we were that cold was during the cold blast of December 1998! Imagine what would have happened with snow cover on the ground. I think that was the case in 1972…I see we hit 8 degrees on this date that year and Salem got down to -12! So no record lows this morning.

Alright, now it’s time for your participation. Just like we do snow totals; put in your location and low temperature only. Keep discussion in the previous entry or I’ll delete it.

This is what I have from the official stations after the 10am ASOS minimum temps reported:
