Wind Chills You to the Bone

Good Evening,

This morning, the mercury officially fell to its lowest point in Lafayette in nearly a decade! This morning’s record breaking low temperatures of -19° (breaking our record of -15° set back in 1968) matched our morning low on January 16th, 2009!


As of 5:00 A.M. ET, when we dipped to that low of -19°, Lafayette found itself even colder than some spots synonymous around the globe for brutally cold temperatures including none other than the South Pole.

Thankfully, after falling as low as we did, temperatures were finally able to climb back above 0° for many of us this afternoon; Lafayette was at or below 0° for nearly two days! Lafayette dealt with the dubious streak starting on Sunday at 5:00 P.M. ET and lasting through this afternoon at 1:00 P.M. ET (that’s 44 hours straight!) That being said, the 10s and 20s still elude us at this hour!

The cold air (albeit not as cold as this morning’s) is expected to stick around overnight. As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for much of the viewing area. Wind chill values may dip as low as -25° at times overnight.

After peaking at 4° earlier this afternoon, overnight lows should dip as far as -7° throughout Greater Lafayette, though we’re expected to fall to -4° by the predawn hours on Wednesday.

Since we’re going into our 4th straight day of sub-10° temperatures, Wednesday’s anticipated high temperature of 16° is going to feel like a heat wave! The remainder of the work week however, is looking less hospitable; afternoon highs are expected to reach 8° and 7° on Thursday and Friday respectively. Stay warm and stay safe out there.
