Winter comes to Oymyakon
Low temperature this morning (Monday morning local time) of -42F at Oymyakon in eastern Siberia. This isn't the first day this season with a 40 below temperature; it was 43 below on Nov 2nd. Except for the Summit weather station on the Greenland Ice Cap, Oymyakon is the only regular weather station in the northern hemisphere to hit 40 below so far this early winter.
