This page gives the lowest temperature for each year in Syracuse and the date that it happened. A date with a plus sign beside it means the lowest temperature also occurred on at least one other day earlier that year.

These records go back to 1902, with just a few years missing data. The lowest temperature measured during that time was -29 degrees Fahrenheit (-34 Celsius) on January 19, 1904.
