Yet another daily record low temperature was set in the United States as deadly winter storm continues across much of the country.

After record daily low temperatures in Boston on December 16, Denver on December 17, and on two locations in Southern California on December 18, Little Rock, Arkansas recorded a record low temperature of -11.1 °C (12 °F) early Monday morning, December 19, 2016.

According to the National Weather Service, the previous record low in Little Rock for December 19 was -10.5 °C (13 °F), a mark last hit in 1945. It was also that cold in 1929 and 1901.

The record was measured at a station at Clinton National Airport, and comes on a day when brutally cold air settled throughout the state, the Arkansas Online reports.

By 7 a.m., Monticello in south Arkansas was one of the warmest readings across the state at -6.6 °C (20 °F). Little Rock had warmed to -10.5 °C (13 °F) at that point while Fayetteville was -15.5 °C (4 °F), Mountain Home was -15 °C (5 °F)and Hot Springs was -8.8 °C (16 °F).
