I just noticed. I'm surprised your record lows aren't colder.

Colder than -112F?

Even Vostok has trouble managing that and it's at 11000 ft and 79S with a polar night and massive ice sheet to keep the temps down.

But on the other hand, Vostok does have a constant wind blowing that keeps the temps from plummeting and it's not geographically ideal for radiative cooling on calm nights either, so maybe my dream climate should be able to have lower lows

Meh, I'll decrease them by a few degrees...

I wonder if a climate more continental than Verkhoyansk is actually possible on Earth, if we move the landmasses around a little...

Lol, I guess I was speaking relative to the record highs. The record highs in your winter months are like 40-50 F warmer than the average but the record lows were like 20-30 F colder. Was just curious why it wasn't symmetrical is all.


I like the new records a bit better though.

Idk why, but the same thing tends to happen in places like Verkhoyansk and Yakutsk as well.

In January, Verkhoyansk has a record high of 15F, an average high of -44F, an average low of -55F, and a record low of -90F. It's super asymmetric, but I don't really understand the reason. Probably because the Siberian High breaks or shifts every so often, bringing "normal" temperatures to the area, whereas temps don't really drop that far below the usual average when it strengthens.

Anyways, since I modeled my dream climate after Verkhoyansk and Oymyakon, it shares that feature with them.

I guess since Oymyakon and Verkhoyansk are the "source" of cold air already, it's difficult to get cold snaps there? Maybe below normal temperatures are caused more by the high pressure intensifying rather than an air mass coming from a cold source. If you notice, the coldest record lows in NA are in Alaska and NW Canada, closest to that source of air.


Anyways, at 10 AM in my dream climate:


Temp: 52 F (11 C)


Conditions: Partly Cloudy


Dew Point: 33 F (1 C)


Wind: NW at 10 mph


Low this morning was 35 F (2 C), fell below freezing in outlying suburbs. Predicted high today 62 F (17 C).
