Re: Brad - Tampa vs Orlando
Edited by Brad - Pittsburgh on 2/8/2018, 8:35 am
Actually now that I look, Tampa was 28F according to Accuweather as well as 6 straight days with lows in the 30's. My location in Lutz had 3 consecutive days with lows at freezing or below and 2 different lows of 28F and 27F. Lakeland is even more interesting in that the lows were much more moderate overall throughout both cold stretches, but the absolute low was 25F on the 18th, but also 29F on the 4th. Orlando was warmer for both events.
