Cold Winter at Intervale: North Country Public Radio
Intervale Lowlands has indeed been one of the coldest spots in the contiguous U.S. this year. From our accounts, there have been 6 days where Intervale Lowlands in Lake Placid has been colder than any reported NOAA weather stations in the contiguous U.S. In addition, Intervale Lowlands tied for lowest temperature on two days (Berlin, NH on March 1st, and Saranac Lake on March 3rd).
What does this mean for spring? It’s hard to say exactly, and this year’s phenology will depend in large part on the temperatures the preserve experiences this spring. As summer approaches and temperatures slowly increase, flowers and insects will start to show themselves.
