Coldest Morning of the Season So Far…….Lows Tonight

January 2nd, 2013 at 3:03 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

It was the coldest morning of the season, so far.  Chuck, northeast of Frankfort, dropped to -2.  1 at Clinton Prairie.  1.8 here at the station.  Doug in Flora had 4 degrees.

In Indianapolis, it was the coldest in two winters with 5.  We still managed -2 last winter here at the station (January 20), despite it being overwhelmingly mild.  In fact, two days later, the 4.0″ snow was gone & it was 51 degrees!

So, this morning’s 2 was the coldest since January 20 of last year.  This was after last winter’s largest snowfall total of 4″.

    From the diary of a farmer living near Stockwell, Indiana in Tippecanoe County.
    December 31, 1863
    7am-34 degrees and beginning to snow
    12pm-34 degrees and snowing quite briskly at times with a strong wind.
    1pm-Wind sprang up briskly from the west (look out) Does anyone want me to continue? This was a very big weather event and they were still talking about this in 1914, 50 years later.
