It was right around 15F from 11PM to 7AM.
So much worse than your average "touch 15F briefly before sunrise" type low. That and there was still some light wind after very heavy winds the night before when we hit 17F. High temp yesterday was about 30F and today it is supposed to be 33F.
This is the strongest cold event I have seen here in more than a decade of gardening. Yes I have seen lower temps (12F, 14F), but nothing close to this cold for this long with this much wind. The only thing going for us is no precipitation proceeded the event.
