Daily low temperature records recorded along Orange County coast

Daily records for low temperatures were recorded along the Orange County coast Tuesday as a low-pressure area continued to bring clouds and traces of rain to Southern California, the National Weather Service said.

At Laguna Beach, the temperature bottomed out at 63 degrees, breaking a record 68 degrees set in 1928, the weather service said. Newport Beach recorded a 62-degree reading, which broke the previous low of 65 degrees set in 1929. At Oceanside Harbor, the low was 64 degrees, which beat the previous record of 65 degrees set in 1914.

Lower-than-normal temperatures and the possibility of thunderstorms and rain will continue through early Thursday, the weather service said. Temperatures will begin rising Friday and warm weather will continue through early next week.

The weather service said the warmest day should be Sunday.

What do you mean by "Daily Low Temperature" records? The article makes it sound like nighttime minimum records are broken, as in "the temperature bottomed out at 63 degrees." Yet daily low temperatures for most of the past month (except last week) have routinely been in the 50's (Farenheit). Perhaps you mean to say "Record low daily maximum temperature"? Your news item would make much more sense if you wrote "Tuesday's temperature topped out at a mere 63 degrees."

at what time of the day did the low temperatures occur?

how about that global warming ;)
