Southwest Cold and Gulf Coast Ice

On February 2nd, a storm near Iceland bottomed out at 954 mb:
The low temperature at Tucson for yesterday morning was 18 for the 2nd day in a row. This is 1 degree above the record for February, and 2 above the all-time record low. The low at Bisbee-Douglas Airport yesterday morning was 0, breaking the record of 11 set in 1955, and tying the 2nd lowest all-time. The low this morning was 11. In New Mexico, 30,000 homes are without natural gas.

A storm hit the Gulf Coast with significant ice accumulations yesterday, including Brownsville and Galveston. See map and pictures from the Brownsville area.
This is the same storm which hit Dallas with snow, and the same day that ice slid off of Cowboys Stadium and injured 7 people.

Hard freeze warnings were still effective this morning for the Texas Gulf Coast:
