Twenty years have passed and that miserable winter, where snow starting falling Christmas night and didn't stop until April, remains one for the record books.
But 2015 could set some records of its own, a meteorologist from WeatherWorks in Hackettstown said Friday morning.
"I think it might be 20-year-type of cold" that descended overnight on the Lehigh Valley and northwest New Jersey, Rob Reale said. "Particularly Sunday night into Monday morning. We're not talking all-time record cold -- (but) from a mid-February-type record, it might be record cold."
There is a chance that overnight low hits "minus-5 around here; possibly minus-8," Reale said.
The all-time low for Feb. 15 at Lehigh Valley International Airport is minus-8, while the record low for Feb. 16 is minus-7, both set in 1943, Reale said, citing National Weather Service figures.
