Low Temps on Ajax Peak & Bordeaux

Hi guys!  Would anyone know where I could find recorded low temps (not record lows) for Ajax Peak and Bordeaux Mountain?  I have tried a number of things but when it comes to historical figures, I find it bumps me from current local/personal weather station data on these peaks, and just reverts to showing Cruz Bay temps, which we know are not the same at all.

I've found anecdotal evidence such as "cold" and sweater/sweatshirt at night, but I'm really in search of actual temperatures (and wind speed would be nice too).

Anyone have a clue where I can find it?

Thanks! 😃

I don't know if Will Henderson still lives there, but according to this old article in the Source, he is probably got best bet for getting something from a reliable source.

I'm pretty sure it would be at least a few degrees cooler than the record listed by the National Weather Service at Anna's Hope on STX in 1954 of 51 degrees.

Post back if you find an answer - now you've got me interested...

@rewired That is interesting but I'm not looking for record lows.  I just want to know the temperature on Ajax Peak and Bordeaux Mountain at night in the winter.  I'm thinking it's about 68⁰ but I'm looking for the historical data or for someone who lives at the top of St. John to confirm 😃

Almost every place now uses GIS maps. Google USVI GIS map. When you find the property you want it will give the owners name and the mailing address.  Maybe mail some people a letter.

Hey that's an interesting solution!  I am often on the GIS website for the VI.  Not sure how successful it might be though.  There's got to be someone with a home up there and an outdoor thermometer, who's also online... I'm hoping at least! 😃 Not giving up!

The TrioAdvisor St John forum is very active.  You could post the question there and probably get multiple responses.

Here's a link to one of the personal weather stations on the island:

https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/ISAINT61/graph/2021-02-30/2021-02-30/monthly

This link has the monthly weather chart for February of this year, but you can change the month to see other months (the low last February was 68 at this location).

You will also see the flags for other stations on the map and you can click on them to go to the public or for this locations as well.

The link is to the closest one I saw to Bordeaux Mountain, but I didn't see any right on the mountain.

@rewired This is great!  I had looked at this before but it kept kicking me back to Cruz Bay whenever I looked up the history but this is working!  Just what I needed!  

There's actually a PWS on Ajax...

Thanks for the help! 😃😃😃
