Florida Town Breaks 1950s Low Temperature Records for 2nd Straight Day in a Row

The Ledger | Oct 30, 2008

Lakeland, FL – Lakeland set a low temperature record Thursday for the second straight day.

A reading of 42 at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport broke the record of 46 for Oct. 30, which had stood since 1952.

Wednesday, a reading of 38 marked the first time temperatures in the 30s have ever been reported in Polk County during October. The previous low was 42 on Oct. 21, 1989.

That reading of 38 also set the record for the date, which had been 48 in 1957.

But this spell of cold weather is now over, said Mike Clay of Bay News 9.

Clay said temperatures the next few days are expected to range from the low 60s to the 80s.

He said there is a 20 percent chance of rain Saturday and a 40 percent chance Sunday.
