    The NOAA puts it at the very bottom of each national report here: http://www.weather.gov/view/national...ype=tempprecip

    they put one out at 830am and another at 830pm. Just keep scrolling, and you'll see it. They keep several days' worth of info on there at the same time so make sure you're looking at the right date.

    The problem is that they're pretty inconsistent about those highs and lows. For instance, they recently said they wouldn't count any station above 8500 ft in elevation for the coldest spot in the nation....but then about a week later they put Leadville, CO (almost 10000 ft) up there as the cold spot. They also miss late reports (places like Embarrass and West Yellowstone aren't automated so they often don't show up on the state pages til late at night).

    I usually end up going through several state climate pages each day, to make sure I've got the best info. Here's the one for Colorado http://www.weather.gov/view/prodsByS...odtype=climate ; to get other states, just change the 'CO' in the URL to other state abbreviations; keep scrolling and almost every state page has a nice table showing the high and low temp at most stations for the last day. I keep separate lists for the uninhabited (or almost uninhabited) places like Mt. Washington, Bodie CA (a ghost town), Charleston NV, and Death Valley.

    Accuweather also puts some national highs/lows here: http://wwwa.accuweather.com/news-sum...ler=0#extremes , but they're not always based on official NOAA station data.

    I live in Chapel Hill and follow the weather here: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/data/obhistory/KIGX.html . High today here was 81; Raleigh hit 83. Tomorrow morning, check out this page: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/validPr...=HYD&node=KRAH and it should tell us if any station beat 83 today. Still cool in the mountains, though--several stations with lows in the upper 30s yesterday.
