Record Cold Continues

March 3rd, 2014 at 11:45 am by under News, Weather

The forecast is like a “broken record” (remember those old 45s you used to put on your spindle) and this winter will be known as one that keeps breaking records.  The low this morning in Green Bay dropped to -24°-the coldest temperature in 18 years and the ninth coldest day ever recorded since we started keeping records in 1886; a span of 46,387 days.  The wind chill was -37 at one point this morning and it felt every bit of that on the weather deck.  Now that meteorological winter is over (December, January & February) it turned out to be the second coldest ever and we keep adding to the record of days below zero.  In addition, as of this morning the Great Lakes were 90.5% frozen which is the most ice-covered since 1994 when they were 90.7% iced over.  Check out the records below and think warm thoughts.
