What is the coldest time of the year for you?

I thought this map was interesting enough to share… I've alway thought it was interesting that the coldest time on the year on the west coast is in December, but much later on the East coast. My coldest time is mid December after that the days start to warm up but the nights can still be very cold. What is your coldest time of the Year?

The map indicates my median coldest period is Jan 11-15. The coldest morning I've experienced in 25 years in SWFL is Jan. 11, 2010: 28.5F. Before I saw the chart I was going to say Jan. is generally our coldest month, although I have to watch out for late Dec. & early Feb. when it comes to truly tropical palms.

Chart is accurate for me.  Jan. 11th-15th.  That's very close to the coldest days of Jan. 2010.

Negative singles and teens in mid to Late January. . . when we've had 70 degree days the last few years.  Thanks jet-stream destabilization!
