Do you still think this has been the hottest year on record? I guess they haven't averaged in the December stats yet.
Bermuda’s record breaking cold temperatures continued today, with the recorded low of 48F/9C the coldest temperature of the year, and also the record low for the whole month of December.
Bermuda Weather Service meteorologist Michelle Pitcher said “As far as the record low, we actually set two this morning. 48F/9C is the record low for the 21st of December, the previous low for this day was 54F/12C set in 1955. We also broke the record low for the whole month of December. The previous low ever reached in December was 50F/10C which we reached twice in 1955 and in 1962. One more interesting fact is that it is also the coldest temperature recorded so far in 2010.”
The Bermuda Weather Service climate records date back to 1949.
