January 14th is on average the coldest day in Chicago. Average high of 31 degrees.

Statistically, it's the ONE day of the year that the high temperature in Chicago fails to reach the freezing mark.

January 20th next year will be either a very great or very sad day, for other factors than those.

For Seattle though, the coldest averages are on Jan 4-6.

November and December are a lot more depressing to me than January. I hate the holiday season. At least by mid-January, you know the madness of the holiday season is behind you, there aren't the same repetitive three holiday songs being played on the radio 24/7 and and each day will be warmer on average than the last.

*shiver* October's almost over. I'm going to hibernate starting November 1st. Will someone wake me up on January 7?

January around here.

The coldest low temperature since records have been kept was between -30 and -35F. Not as cold as I thought... The northwoods of NH has gotten as cold as -50F in the past.

Our "coldest" average highs falls between Jan 5-27. The coldest average high is 44° and low is 24° (officially @ the airport). Strange, because in years past, I recall it being 45/25 as the coldest averages. Strange it went down and its not really seemed like its been lower than normal that much.

The all-time record low at the airport is -21° on January 21, 1985. That was much colder than the 2nd lowest all-time record. It has not been anywhere near that cold since then.

According to the Duluth NWS Office website, the coldest daily average high and low for Duluth are 17 and -2, from January 9th to January 21st. Having lived here for 15+ years I can say that it can get much colder than that, below -35 in January and February, and high temperatures can be as low as -20. We can go several days without seeing the temperature rise above 0° F...
