The National Weather Service says the thermometer in Elkins bottomed out at 10 below zero Friday morning, breaking the March 6 record of zero set in 1901.

In Clarksburg, the temperature dipped to 3 below, smashing the mark of 7 above set in 1960.

Huntington’s low of zero broke the record of 5 above set in 1960 and Parkersburg hit 3 above to eclipse a record that stood since 1960.

Charleston’s reading of 5 above broke a 98-year-old record.
