Re: Queen Palms horror on Broadway Ave Galveston Today
Checking the numbers for KGLS, it showed a winter minima of 25F. There were two days in January with highs of 36F and 37F.
Still, I thought Queen Palms were good to 20F. I'm really surprised at the extreme damage seen in the photos and wonder if temperatures were significantly colder away from the airport.
