For a week that brings back memories of January 2014 type temperatures and records, two new temperature milestones were recorded this week.

On Thursday February 19 an official mark of -4 was recorded by the Boone 1Se reporting station. While the reading became a new record overall for Boone, it just narrowly missed by two degrees setting a countywide mark.

On Friday February 20 a reading of -5 was recorded, which surpassed the previous mark for Boone by 9 degrees, and the previous mark for the county by 7 degrees.
