Good Evening,

Tonight's forecasted low temperate of -6° will mark our lowest in Lafayette in just over 72 hours; unfortunately wind out of the northwest between 5 and 10 mph will ensure that wind chill values across the viewing area remain between -10° and -20°.


As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for the entirety of the viewing area through Tuesday evening. That being said, overnight low temperatures are expected to fall below 0° each and every night through the end of the next work week!

At its lowest point early Tuesday morning, the actual air temperature in Lafayette may fall as low as -14°. If that current forecast holds true, that will be our lowest temperature felt in Lafayette in four years! Worse yet will be the wind chills; as many of us head back to work on the morning January 2nd, wind chill values could be hovering around the -30° mark.

Stay warm and be safe.
