It's cold, but not a December record
FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
Fred Weiss, in Baltimore, asks, “Have we set any records with this cold weather?”
December has been unusually cold so far. We’ve averaged 33.4 degrees through Tuesday. That’s 5.4 degrees below the long-term norm.
If it stayed that cold, this would be the coldest December since 2000. The coldest on record was December 1989, which averaged 25.4 degrees at BWI-Marshall. Brrr! Tuesday’s electric demand did set a new December record in the 13-state PJM Interconnection.
