Following record warmth in February, on this date, in 1984, thermometers tumbled below zero for the first of seven days in a row in most northern valleys in Vermont and New Hampshire. This is the latest that an extended spell of cold weather has been recorded in modern times. But severe cold has been noted on this date before, when in 1872, the temperature fell to 25 below zero on the 5th, and 20 below zero on the 6th in Lunenburg, VT.
