This Day in History
clear

Have you wondered what happened in the past on this day in Cache Valley?

One way to find out is by reading historical newspapers. Currently, many local papers are available for you to search online, and content online continues to grow! In fact, the Logan Library is currently working to digitize the Cache American which was published here in the valley from 1931 to 1947. Other newspaper are available through the Utah Digital Newspaper Project.

If you would like to become part of this volunteer effort, please fill out the online form or contact me for more information.

Has it been cold outside?
clear

This time of year, we often hear conversation about the temperatures, usually exclaiming about how cold it has been. Cache Valley has a reputation in Utah of being rather cold. This might lead someone to ask: what are normal temperatures one can expect in Cache Valley?

As it happens, over the past month it actually has been colder than the multiyear average. On December 9 the low temperature was -14°F, compared to the average for that day of 18°F, a difference of 32°F. We also had a cold spell that lasted from December 3 to December 19, 17 consecutive days with cooler than average low temperatures. Additionally, 81% of the days in December had lower than average low temperatures.

This and historical statistics can be found on our Community Profile page.
