Still Number 1!

Welcome to Fairbanks!

24/7 Wall Street, did a study to determine the coldest cities in the United States. In spite of the funky weather we have been experiencing lately, Fairbanks, Alaska retained its rightful spot as the Coldest City in America!

Take that Boston. Impostor after our Winter Mojo.

Alas, the data used in the study was taken from the years 1981 – 2010. So New England still has a chance to wrest the title away from us if they remain persistent.

Now the data for Fairbanks:
Average monthly minimum temperature: -16.9 F
Average monthly maximum temperature: 52.3 F
Average annual snowfall: 66.1 in.

Rounding out the Top 5:
2) Grand Forks, NoDak
Average monthly minimum temperature: -3.1 F
Average monthly maximum temperature: 56.3 F

3)Fargo, NoDak
Average monthly minimum temperature: 0.1 F
Average monthly maximum temperature: 59.5 F

4)Williston, NoDak
Average monthly minimum temperature: 0.1 F
Average monthly maximum temperature: 55.8 F

5)Duluth, MN
Average monthly minimum temperature: 1.5 F
Average monthly maximum temperature: 55.4 F

Minneapolis/St Paul made it up to #12. Green Bay, WI was a very pedestrian #16. Waterloo, IA #17. Anchorage, AK landed at a balmy #22.
