I had a NAO winter probably in 2010 when my lowest low was about 15F . My palms laughed at that winter even though for a few weeks it seemed that most of the highs were like 36-41F and lows were 23F- 27F and sometimes colder than those highs and lows . It was cloudy and dismal it seemed like forever , but all the palms didn't mind that kind of cold at all . Compare that to that 8 day cold snap when the Palmettos were toasted .
Ten year lows: 12F 15F 19F 20F 5F 4F 15F 7F 8F (14F 2019)
10 Year Average Winter Lowest Low 11.9F ; 30 Year 11.7F
