New Jersey is one of the coldest spots on the planet today compared to normal temperatures this time of year, so it's not just feeling like it is, it actually is, and therefore logically our bitching is warranted. :-D
As reported at nj.com:
Led by Walpack at -20 degrees, temperatures fell below zero in many parts of the state this morning for the third time in less than a week as the latest round of Arctic air plunged into the region. Temperatures this morning were, in some cases, more than 30 degrees below normal.
A map of global temperature anomalies produced by Climate Re-Analyzer this morning shows that a good portion of the world is experiencing above normal temperatures, and the northeast is far and away the coldest part of the planet when compared to normal.
It appears likely that February will become one of the top five coldest months in more than 120 years of records, according to the state climatologist's office.
But this will make you feel a bit better about the cold here: the coldest temperature ever recorded was minus 128.6 degrees F in at the Russian research station in Vostok, Antarctica, on July 21, 1983.
I still want to go to Florida right now, though. :-D
