Record Cool Temperatures In The Ozarks

Record Cool Temperatures In The Ozarks

By Ted Keller. CREATED Jul 16, 2014

Several record lows were either tied or broken in the Ozarks this morning.

Springfield tied the record this morning at 54°.  West Plains also tied a record by dropping to 53°.

The Joplin and Vichy airport stations broke record lows this morning at 50° and 51° respectively.

Springfield probably would have broken a record this morning too but a pesky cloud deck caused the temperature to rise a few degrees in the pre-dawn hours! It went from 56° at 3 a.m. to 59° at 5 a.m.  Finally at 6:06 a.m., the temperature fell back down to 54°.

Joplin's record low of 50° tied the all-time coolest low for July which occurred back on July 13th, 1975.
