Jan. 7, 2013. On Tuesday morning, Beech Mountain Resort released its daily Slope Conditions Report and the temperature atop Beech was nearly 20 degrees below zero at 7:15 a.m. While some trails are open this morning, Beech Mountain Resort closed for the night session on Monday due to the dangerously cold weather.

RaysWeather.com reported on Monday that Beech Mountain experienced its coldest temperature since recording of data began in 1991 at negative 18 degrees.

“Record morning low temperatures are the theme everywhere and it wasn’t even a contest,” RaysWeather.com noted on Tuesday morning. “But in the big picture, while this event was a record cold day for the date, it did NOT even crack the top ten coldest days on record for any location where data has been recorded for more than 60 years. So let’s keep the hoopla in perspective.”

Below is a regional roundup compiled by RaysWeather.com earlier this morning:
