    The 2 indicates its the 6 hour low,the 1 indicates the following three numbers are negative, and the 361 is the temperature in C or 36.1.

    Unfortunately the automated data aggregators aren't picking this code up for the latest ob because somebody forgot to put a space between the 11328 and 21361. It got sent to the NWS as 1132821361.

    Oh, and Neil just mentioned this in the latest observer comment.

    As it stands right now Dave is the winner at -33F and Brad is the runner-up at -32F. Sorry Doyle, 2 degrees off is more than one degree off.

    It doesn't look like there will be another run at the low in the next five days. Coldest I am seeing is about -20F on Tuesday. Just to be sure we'll hold off on the crowning ceremony until next month.

    Considering I have no historic data - and no real knowledge of the weather - and no idea what I am doing talking to a bunch of weather dudes like you guys, I just grabbed a number out of the air - and came pretty close. But, the F6 data is not out yet. So, maybe there is a mistake in the above data. Or I can get the F6 fudged ...

    But, I am still the official winner as of today. :-) The F6 still says -32 is the lowest. My glory is about to be crushed though.

    Well Brad, it looks like your days of glory are over. They have updated the F6 report through yesterday. It was a good run though
