Below average temperatures return, Also a look at the potholes developing all over the city!

Cold weather is starting to return to the area after that brief warm up we saw last week. It felt nice while it lasted however now we snap back to winter. Our average high for this time of year is around 35*F degrees, We reached a high last week of 61*F degrees. Our weather is like a rubber band, The more you stretch it away from the normal the harder it snaps back! And that's what we're doing this week. We will be a good 11*F degrees below our average high and a good 13*F to 20*F degrees below our average low at times this week. From one extreme to another. Take a peak at tonight's outlook.
Tonight: We can expect a low around 8*F degrees with light winds between 5 and 10 mph. Skies become partly cloudy as we head into the overnight.

More cold polar air enters the area as we start our work week. We will see highs and lows below our average all week. Hopefully you didn't put away your heavy coats just yet. Winter continues to hold on with a tight grip! Take a look at this temperature model below looking into Monday, You can see that cold air starting to dip back down to Indiana. A sight we've become so familiar with.
As of now we can expect partly cloudy skies across the area as we head into Monday with more clouds moving in as we go through the day into Monday night / Tuesday. Some light snow showers will move into the picture as a small clipper crosses the area late late Monday into Tuesday. Snowfall less than an inch. Expect a low Monday around 14*F degrees with winds between 10 and 15 mph.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be two of the coldest days / night this week. Take a look at these forecast temperatures below.
Yes, break out the warm wool socks and kick on the fireplace! You're gonna need it lol. Look at that expected low Tuesday night of -4*F! Only climbing to a high Wednesday around 10*F degrees. Brrrrrrr is right. Stay warm bloggers!

Now something related to all the cold and snow we have seen this season, Potholes! Yes, believe it or not we have so many potholes in Lafayette, Indiana this year that I just saw Lafayette, Indiana on the weather channel as they were talking about how bad it is. That's crazy! I know crews are out trying to repair them as best as they can with temperatures still being so low. However it's gonna take a while. Teal rd, and 52 are horrible! So why is it that so many potholes develop after the winter? Well, I have your answer!
As seen above, Potholes occur as part of Indiana's freeze and thaw every year. Potholes begin after snow or rain seeps into the soil below the road surface, The moisture then freezes when temperatures fall below freezing, This causes the ground to expand and push up on the pavement. As the temperatures climb back up above freezing as they did last week the ground returns to normal level, However now there is a gap between the pavement and the ground below. Once a car drives over the cavity, the pavement surface cracks and fall into the hollow space leading to the birth of another pothole.

Pretty crazy to think about huh? All we can do is continue to be as careful as possible when driving and try not to damage our Vachel's in the presses! Have a great day bloggers. I'll check back again soon.

God Bless!
