35 Degree High Breaks 100-year-old Record In Jamestown Saturday

JAMESTOWN – To say it was cold on Saturday was an understatement, with a high of only 35 degrees, it is officially the coldest May 9th on record in Jamestown.

The 35-degree high recorded at the Chautauqua County/Jamestown Airport broke a record low-high that has stood for 118 years.

The previous record was 42 degrees, set in 1902.

Weather records for the City of Jamestown started being actively kept in 1890, later moving to the airport when it opened in the 1930’s.
