Equal to record. Previous record set earlier this month. Note that this station is only reporting its minimum temperature to the nearest degree, so its run of equal records of -5.0 (on 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 26, 27 and 29 June) is a little misleading compared to most other stations that report to the nearest tenth of a degree.
