On this date in 1988, following record heat in the middle of the month, cold air sent the mercury down into the 30s, setting a record low in Montpelier at 39. Elsewhere it dropped to 36 in Morrisville, 35 in Chelsea, and chilly enough for a touch of frost in South Lincoln at 33 degrees! The heat would return that summer, the hottest summer in recent memory.
