Holy crap, Walpack went all the way down to -23 according to the map.

EDIT: - that looks a little funky though on the 5-minute data loop. Could be real, but it is a bit of an odd downward spike

By the way -16 in Walpack and Sandystone. High Point -10
My house -7

Lows in NJ, -23 F in western Sussex County. What township would that be?

-8 according to my car.
In regards to climate change, what are the excuses of record high temps set in the late 18 and early 1900s? What are the excuses of record low temperatures in the same time period? Climate change and global warming fanatics want it both ways. Extreme cold and extreme heat are both the result of climate change they claim. They had to change the narrative from global warming to climate change because the earth was not cooperating with their theory.

Again this 97% consensus of scientists is a complete lie for anyone who actually researches that statement. The biggest indicator of this fraud perpetuated upon our world is that climate scientists refuse to debate. The science is settled they claim. Science is never settled. What they are saying is contrary to the scientific method. They just donít want to debate for fear of exposure.

It is Walpack, but not sure I totally buy it. If you click on 5-minute data, it goes from -19 to -20 to -23, and back up to -16 all in 5-minute increments.

Good observation gps. Now it is down to a min of -25 F on the Rutgers map lol. The nearest reporting station was a min of -17.
Either number is impressive, nevertheless. FD

ps- Current in Walpack is -16 F and the next station is -13 (up four degrees). If Walpack has also warmed about four degrees, that would put its low around -20 or so. Still impressive.

I agree. Especially when there is no wind, temperatures over short distances can be very different. On still nights I have seen a 6 or 7 degree difference in my own backyard with 2 thermometers. One was up high and the other about 5 feet off the ground.

According to Nick Stefano, Walpack hit -25F this morning. Walpack Township, Sussex County
He said there is a very large ridge to the E of the weather station that prevents the AM sun from hitting it right away; so the area tends to continue dropping even a little after sunrise.

Severe cold is definitely a valid reason to close schools.

Sure. But at what level? Plenty of places in our area had well below zero wind chills without closing. I have never seen schools close in my home town for cold, and we have been as cold as KY was today.

The governor is right in the larger picture, but did pick a bad example that he could be ridiculed on.

Also irks me how NBC is sooo quick to jump all over and ridicule a Republican politician, while ignoring nutty/dangerous politicians on NBC's side (Democrats).
Dem governor (an MD) on radio stunningly describes post-delivery infanticide, hardly covered if at all.

It should be a judgement based upon how the kids get to school and how long that puts them outside. If they are bused such that it is a 5 minute walk to the stop and the potential for a 5 minute wait, that is 10 minutes of exposure. If wind chill values say that is too long, it is a valid reason to at least delay opening. Even greater issue for kids that need to walk to school. I believe the law in NJ is that schools are not required to provide busing inside of a two mile radius of a school IF there are sidewalks or other safe passages for the kids. That can be a long walk.

I agree, we go below 0 every winter but no one says anything, including the media. But when it affects a large area like this one, the media jumps on it and all of a sudden areas that normally see below 0, like here, delay schools. Let's be honest is 90-minute delay going to make that much of a difference.

My kids are 120 minutes more stupid now, thanks. The delay was so worth it, we went from -8 to -4, good call board of education. More like BORED of education.

I graduated HS in 1988 and in 84 or 85, there was a day like yesterday.....extremely cold, windy with below zero wind chills. School was not delayed or cancelled so I walked to school like normal, about 3/4 of a mile, 20 minutes outside. Guess what.....I survived and am still walking this earth.

Education is supposed to prepare you for life. Does anyone know someone who called in sick or took a vacation day yesterday because of the cold? Did fireman or utility workers not work yesterday because it was cold? And what about heat.....do workers who lay hot asphalt get the day off when its 95 and humid? What about landscapers? Or Farmers? Or Utility workers? C'mon...

My son was always taught that school is his job and its important to be there. He rarely missed a day and worked hard at it. Just like Mom and Dad have jobs, so does he. He's now studying for his Doctorate, so we must have done something right.
