The thermometer at the Atlantic City International Airport offered another chilling reminder that the 2013-14 winter season has been one of the coldest in recent memory.

The temperature plunged to a record low this morning, Thursday, March 27, according to a reading posted by the National Weather Service’s Eastern Region Headquarters.

The temperature at the airport dropped to 12 degrees, the Weather Service said. The former record was 16 degrees set in 2001.

Atlantic City wasn’t alone, however.

According to the National Weather Service, 22 cities across the Northeast and Middle Atlantic States set low records this morning.

Other low record temperatures were Trenton at 20 degrees, Newark (22), Wilmington, Del. (21), and Reading (18).

In Baltimore, the home of Babe Ruth, the temperature dropped to 20 degrees. In Richmond, the Capital of the South, the temperature dropped to 21. In DuBois, where the famous groundhog lives, the temperature was a chilly 10 degrees. In Martinsburg, W.V., where the “Gypsy Sisters” is filmed, the temperature fell to 16.

All were records.

All were cold.
