January 19 and 20 1994 brought THE coldest temperatures ever recorded to our area when the thermometer dropped to -22° at New Philadelphia. Many areas across Ohio also saw record cold those days and like us, the coldest ever recorded.
We saw 12 days during the winter of 1993-94 where the low dipped to zero degrees or less. That’s a lot. But the all-time record for the most zero degrees or colder days goes to the 1976-77 season. That brought a total of 25 days zero degrees or colder. The last winter in the Valley that brought zero degree days occurred in 2018-19. We had a total of 4 that season.
