A Lot Of Cold Weather In Your Forecast!

Last night was one of the coldest nights we have seen this winter! WOW! But how long is this cold cold weather going to continue? I will have your answer in just a minute. First I wanted to take a second to show you all some data out of Indianapolis that has to do with last nights lows! Take a look at this.

Low temperature this morning in Indianapolis: -3 (at 0846 EST)
Last time it was this cold in Indianapolis: February 5, 2009
Last time it was colder in Indianapolis: January 16, 2009 (-12)
Record low temperature for today in Indianapolis: -21 (1984)
This is the coldest it has been in Indianapolis in two years! WOW! See, I wasn't joking when I said we have a lot of cold weather to talk about lol. Take a look at last night's
temperatures in Lafayette below. This is what I recorded here at JIWB.You can see a low last night of -0.2* Degrees! With a low wind chill of -11* degrees! The record low on this very day was set back in 1994 and it was -15* degrees! take note that this is without wind chill when that record low was recorded. That's just amazing! You can also see in that image above that some of the roads are still snow covered. Most main roads are looking pretty good at this time. With just some patchy snow in areas. Still take your time while out!You can see Lil Bit, the chihuahua doing her best to stay warm earlier this afternoon. Making sure to stay under the blankets and up off the flood! She is reminding us all to remember our pets during this cold winter time! Make sure they have a warm place to stay. If your pets our outdoors you may want to think about bringing them in for a while! They get cold too.

So just how long is this cold weather going to continue? Well, we have another cold front that will drop lows into the single digits once again tomorrow night.This front will pass through the area later on tomorrow afternoon / evening which will allow for lows tomorrow night to fall into the single digits again! Which means wind chills tomorrow night around -10* degrees. It was so cold earlier this afternoon that your nose froze up! lol. Brow, knows what I'm talking about ;) That's one thing he will never live down! lol :) I did walk out earlier this morning and took a breath, The air was / is SOOO dry with dew points around 0* to -4* degrees that I started to cough. Now that's dry!

Right now I think we will keep the lows in the single digits and teens from tonight through Tuesday where we may see lows warm up into the low 20s before dropping back into the teens again Wednesday through next week.

Here's a look at your detailed weekend quick cast below.

Weekend Quick Cast.....

Saturday we will look for mostly cloudy skies across the area with a few scattered light snow showers off and on. Currently not looking for much in the way of snow accumulation at this time. Expect snowfall less then a half inch. Models are showing me an exact snowfall number of 0.04" Inches. Look for highs around 24* degrees with lows Saturday night for the Purdue basketball game around 4* degrees! Dress warm if your heading out! Winds will be between 10 and 15 mph which means we will see a daytime wind chill around 15* to 13* degrees with a night time wind chill around -10* degrees!

Sunday we will see partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies through out the area. More clouds will try and move in that night into Monday. A few snow flurries / snow showers will be possible into Monday as well. Highs Sunday will be around 20* degrees with lows around 11* degrees. Winds light between 3 and 5 mph.

As for tonight? Expect cloudy skies with lows around 5* degrees! So bundle up bloggers! It's gonna be COLD!

Have an AWESOME weekend!!
