The station moved NE for a period, then was back close to its original prior to 1985(I'm working backwards...) So, I kept searching between the two sites.
Found a close to record long cold spell. Dec 92 to Jan 93, at 35 days, but the average temp was way higher than the one we are enduring during this 37 day period.
Another noteworthy month, Feb 1984, average daily high, +7 C, only one day below zero all month.
Dec 80 through Jan 81, was a 33 day period with all above zero highs. January average high of +5.3 C. With Nov averaging 7C
Found a 26 day period with no above zero highs around Christmas of 78, but average highs are still way warmer than this current pattern.
Prior to 78, they claim there is data, but keeps coming up as not available or under review, so that is as far as I can go. Any station further north or east of that would be drastically different during Chinook season, so no point in trying to compare the data. South gets drastically warmer in mid winter, so no apples to apples comparison available. I'm sure temperature records in the period just prior to the end of that last cold spell, (where they just so happen to start measuring CAGW from)going missing, or needing modified has nothing to do with needing to prove a certain political ideology either.
So within the records available, this is the longest and coldest spell, here anyways.
