Feb. 19 -- On this day in Montana history in 1936 The Jordan Tribune reported a “heat wave” when the thermometer registered "slightly” above zero. On Feb. 14 the official weather station in Jordan recorded a record 58 degrees below zero. The next days before the 19th low temperatures were 57 below, 51 below, 45 below, 29 below and then finally went up to slightly above zero. Reports of livestock loss were coming in from all across the area, and the county tractor grader was working hard to open roads to the lignite coal mine.
