Boise, Idaho Just Shattered a 148-Year-Old Record for Coolness
It doesn't get any cooler than this - literally. Boise, Idaho just broke a record that hasn't been topped in more than 148 years and it has to do with a certain number on the thermometer that temps stayed below in that region.
The National Weather Service in Boise, Idaho shared a graphic representing a stunning consecutive streak of days where the temperature did not top 65 degrees. For Boise, the temp has remained below that number for 154 consecutive days beating the previous record set in 1899.
The National Weather Service says that they didn't start tracking this temperature metric until 1875, so the streak which began late in 2022 and continuing into 2023 is the longest streak of coolness ever.
Looking at The Weather Channel's 10-day forecast for Boise, Idaho, it looks like the streak may end on Sunday, April 9, 2023 as the expected high should be around 69. Still, this is a coolness record that is unlikely to be beaten anytime soon for Boise or any other city for that matter. I'm guessing there's someone in Buffalo, New York saying "hold my beer".
