The nation's coldest daily temp was recorded in Grand Lake 29 times last year, according to the National Weather Service.

The NWS Weather Prediction Center tweet shared the top five daily highs and lows in the lower contiguous U.S. in 2020, and Grand Lake was beat only by Peter Sinks, Utah, which had the coldest temperature for 94 days of the year. The overall chilliest temp of the entire year was also recorded in Colorado on December 30, when Antero Reservoir reached 50 below.

The hottest place in 2020 was, not surprisingly, Death Valley, which had the highest temperature 106 days (basically one third) of the year.

Grand Lake is less than 50 miles west of Fort Collins, and was one of the towns impacted by the East Troublesome Fire in October of 2020, but the community is rebuilding.
