It got down to 14 in last year's ice storm, but was in the 60s by the following Saturday.

I don't know if this is the largest for me, but it is the most recent. Oct. 17th- Miserable weather, probably like 34, cloudy, rain, the worst crap imaginable. Five days later, it was beautiful, sunny, actually quite nice. Two days after that it then became unpleasantly hot, was probably almost 80 but felt even hotter.

My first job out of college was on the installation and commissioning crew for a series of air traffic control radar systems.  The first site I worked on was outside of Kalispell, MT.  On July 1 it was 99 degrees.  On the morning of July 4 it was 26 degrees and snowing.

Low 70's today, mid 30's tomorrow.  That's pretty stark.  The upper Midwest is getting one of those "four seasons in 48 hours" storms.
Wouldn't have it any other way. :P

I don't even think 34 to 80 is unheard of for a single day in a lot of places.

^No, it's really not. But this is just the one that was freshest in my head, and it did say over the course a week.

I think last month's coldpocalypse set my record. On February 16, the low was 15 degrees, and the following week the high was 76. A difference of 61 degrees.
I may have actually broken this in October. I was home on a break from college, where it apparently got up to about 91 degrees. Less than a week later, I was back in Tulsa right in time for a cold snap which brought a low temperature of 27. That's a difference of 64 degrees if I'm counting this right. And a couple days after that cold snap hit it got up to 90 here, so that would be my new single-place temperature variation record I've experienced at 63.
