Given the strong upper level ridge of high pressure that has anchored itself over and near the state for the past two months, and the dryness of the atmosphere, 7 daily record low temperatures have been tied or broken in the state at 5 Climate Stations. The coldest daily record low temperature recorded so far (through the 18th of the month) occurred at the Aztec Ruins National Monument Climate Co-Op Station on the 15th with a reading of 41ºF
