Thereâ€™s a reason Kane is called the â€śIce Box of Pennsylvania.â€ť
Itâ€™s cold in the winter.
But a National Weather Service meteorologist said Friday that the prolonged string of â€śbelow-zeroâ€ť temperatures is â€śridiculousâ€”even for Kane.â€ť
â€śYouâ€™ve been exceptionally cold for this time of the year,â€ť Craig Evanego said in trying to explain the seemingly endless bitter sub-zero temperatures in the Kane area over the past month or so. Evanego is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in State College. Kane is part of this officeâ€™s coverage area.
