Four Records Smashed in Asheville, NC
In one day!

8 Apr 07 - The temperature at the Asheville, N.C. airport dipped to 20 degrees, breaking the record of 25 set back in 1982. This also broke the all-time April record low of 22 degrees which was set in 1987.

In the afternoon, the temperature only reached 38 degrees, making this the coldest maximum temperature for the date. The previous record was a full 10 degrees higher at 48. With the cold also came 1.2 inches of snow, breaking the previous record of 1.0 inches set in 1989.

Temperatures are expected to again set records Sunday morning, with the greatest concentration in the South. These temperatures will be low enough to put fruit trees, vegetable crops and home garden plantings, at great risk of frost and freeze damage.

(I love this. Asheville is the home of the National Climatic Data Center, which appears to be pushing a global warming agenda. "Burning of fossil fuels is causing an increase in greenhouse gases, and there's a broad scientific consensus that is producing climate change," said Jay Lawrimore, chief of the climate monitoring branch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.)
