Five Coldest Years in Texarkana History
The temperatures this weekend is pretty chilly but who remembers the coldest temps in recent history?
Texarkana has seen teens and twenties in the past few years. As recent as 2015 we dipped down into the teens. The record low that year according to Weather History was thirteen degrees, just as it was in 2010 and 2011. In 1982 it was negative seven degrees. It snowed a lot the first year that I moved to this area with my parents. We didn't realize this wasn't an every year occurrence. It was a great, snowman making, snowball throwing snow.
The sixties saw some pretty cold temps. In 1962 it was zero, in 1963 it was six degrees and in 1966 it was nine degrees. These are actual temps, nothing reflecting wind chill factors.
