It's too chilly for my taste, that's clear. The record is a little murkier, though:
In my data set going back to 2004, the coldest daily minimum temp was 55.6°F / 13.1°C on 17 Jan 2011.
2nd place was a tie between this morning at 59.4°F / 15.2°C, and the 59°F / 15°C on 16&17 Mar 2005.
However, the 2011 record was measured up at the Brisas del Mar apartments by Deanna, whereas today's reading was taken in my back patio down in the town. I suspect that there is some data shift since my patio is surrounded by masonry walls and has a masonry roof.
I would subtract a couple or even three degrees F from my readings to be comparable to Deanna's. That would lower mine to 56-57°F. Still not quite a new record, at least not in my data set. Oh well, at least I didn't have to experience the 52°F tat Murray and Beth recorded!
Maybe tonight will be even colder ?!?!?
