Record 'cold' temperature likely to be set in Concord on Tuesday
CONCORD — It's no secret this weather is unusual for June. This "June gloom" is more typical of early April. However, Tuesday's temperatures may break a record in Concord.
The lowest, or "coldest," high temperature for June 6 in Concord is 54 degrees, set in 1928.
Through 1 p.m., the high temperature in Concord is 50 degrees, reached at 2 a.m.
Since then, temperatures have been steadily around 49 degrees.
Periods of rain will continue into the evening. The showers and chilly wind will lock in the cold air, preventing the temperatures from rising much at all. This means the state capital should break the record for the coldest June 6.
By this time next week, the pattern looks completely different: Heat and humidity are on the way.
Record high temperatures may be challenged in Concord. Monday's record high is 94 degrees set in 1973 and Tuesday's record is 94 degrees set in 1956.
