Central Indiana’s winter preview has turned into a record setting week. On Monday we received 2.8″ of snow, breaking the record for the date and the record for snow depth. On Tuesday we dropped to a record low temperature of 8 degrees, breaking the record low of 14 degree set back in 1911. We also set records for the earliest single digit low of the season and the coldest maximum temperature with a high of 20 degrees.

For Wednesday I’m forecasting a low temperature of 9 degrees. The would break the record low of 10 degrees set in 1986.

The temperature in Indianapolis has been below freezing since 3pm Monday. We should barely get above freezing Wednesday afternoon before a warming trend takes hold for the rest of the week.
