Just as the clock struck midnight on this date in 1920, Northfield, VT set the state record for the highest barometric reading, that of 31.14 inches. High pressure in the winter is invariably the result of the weight of very cold air, so it is not surprising that readings fell to 39 below zero in Enosburg Falls, and 38 below in St. Johnsbury. However, the next day thermometers rose to the 40s!
