Record cold hits Burlington, Vermont

Date: February 27, 2015 | Category:

According to the Burlington Free Press, the temperature on Monday, Feb. 23, reached 19 degrees below Fahrenheit at 4:09 a.m., breaking the previous record of 18 below that was set in 1914. More winter weather is ahead.

The whole state was hit with near-record low temperatures as thermometers in Montpelier hit -19, Canaan and East Berkshire at -37 and Milton reached 28 degrees below zero. 

Brooke Taber, a National Weather Service meteorologist, reassured Vermont residents that it was likely the coldest weather the state would see this season. The next 10 days are forecast to reach a low of six degrees below on Friday, with a high of 30 on Sunday and reaching all the way to a rainy 38 degrees on Wednesday, March 4.  

The Weather Channel forecasts a 60 percent chance of snow on Monday, March 2 that is part of a front starting Friday, February 27 near the Four Corners states of Colorado, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. The wintry mix will bring snow as far south as Texas and work it's way across the U.S. until it peters on Tuesday, March 3, off of the East Coast. 

Consider bringing a thick winter coat that is water resistant for your short walk from the airport terminal to Burlington International Airport parking.
