It Was So Cold In Texas In 1899, Temperatures Dropped To 30 Degrees Below Zero

Another exception occurred in February 1899, which was, quite possibly, the coldest winter in Texas history. Around Valentine’s Day of that year, the town of Tulia recorded a temperature of -30 degrees Fahrenheit: the lowest temperature the state had (and still has) yet to see.
