Right around December 1st (being a Warm weather fan) for fun I like to see what cities in the USA have not (or never do) fall below 40 F (5 C).

Of course high temps in the 60's and 70's are common in many areas of the southern tier from Florida, to the Gulf coast, the southwest Deserts, to Califorina, but what about lows? So for fun I thought I would keep a running log of NWS stations (in bigger cities) that have not gone below 40 F. I might have missed your town, but I didn't want to have to list every little town, only bigger metro's. Although I expected Florida to lead the pack, Texas is right up there. I was a bit shocked San Diego was so cold so early :




1. Key West, FL = 62 F (11/9)

2. Miami, FL = 56 F (10/31)
3. St Petersburg, FL = 56 F (11/9/…11/19)
4. Ft. Lauderdale, FL = 56 F (11/8)
5. Port Isabel, TX = 55 F (10/27)
6. McAllen, TX = 53 F (10/27)
7. Naples, FL = 52 F (11/9)
8. Palm Beach, FL = 51 F (10/30)

9. Galveston, TX = 48 F (11/13)
10. Corpus Christi, TX = 48 F (11/13)
11. Yuma, AZ = 48 F (11/13)
12. Los Angeles, CA = 47 F (11/11)
13. Orlando, FL = 45 F (11/9)
14. Melbourne, FL 45 F (11/8)
15. New Orleans, LA = 44 F (11/9)
16. Palm Springs, CA = 44 F (11/11)
17. Phoenix, AZ = 43 F (11/11)
18. San Francisco, CA = 43 F (11/11-12)
19. Daytona Beach, FL = 42 F (10/30)
20. San Diego, CA = 41 F (11/11-12)
21. San Antonio, TX = 41 F


Is there a larger city I missed?

Interestingly, Scilly St Marys in the UK probably hasn't fallen below 40F yet, and this is at 50 degrees north.

That is amazing when you think about it. Thank that good old Gulf Stream!

What are typical highs in the cold season (Dec - Feb) ? I would guess that it's still rather warm(ish).

You can add San Antonio, TX. to the list. Their lowest so far at SA Int'l Airport has been 41.

Highs of 9-11C (48-53F) and lows of 6-8C (43-46F).

London Heathrow has already seen 16 days with lows below 5C/41F this season, due to the cold October.

We, of course, have been well below freezing and actually had one night that approached 0° just east of here.

It should be fun to track. I see that the typical "extreme south strip" is included in the list. You could call those the last outposts of (constant) warmth at this time of the year. It should be interesting to see some of these cities taken off the list as meteorological winter goes on.

The only real outlier on the list is Key West. To see that it hasn't gotten below 62F for the low temperature this late in the year speaks to just how warm the Florida Keys really are (hot is what I'd call it, but we're talking lows here, not the commensurate 70-85F highs).
