Coldest Morning Since 2004?
At 11pm, temperatures across the area are near -5F (-21C) and are continuing to drop. The wind chill is currently at -25F (-32C). Forecast lows for the area are near -10F (-23C). I hope that we exceed -12F and hit -13F for the morning low, but I don't think that will happen. On December 25, 2004 the low was -12F and we had a very deep snow cover of 28 inches. If we had that type of snow cover tonight, we'd probably have a low in the -20F to -30 range. Unfortunately, we just don't have the deep snow cover that would help create such cold temperatures.
