Kalamazoo Just Broke A 120 Year Cold Temp Record
At 4:38 AM this morning (1/31/19) Kalamazoo was the coldest it's been since 1899.
Jeff Porter from WWMT Channel 3 just told me (as I am writing this) we are currently at -16. Kalamazoo's cold temp record took place in 1899 at a bone chilling -15.
Breaking records can be exciting. However, it is dangerously cold out there. Wind chills are hovering around -35 to -40. The wind chill warning has been extended to 7PM this evening. With the possibility of wind chills dipping as low as -45 Jeff reminds us,
...UNDER 10 MINUTES FOR FROSTBITE OR HYPOTHERMIA, DON'T FORGET YOUR PETS.
Here's a wind chill map provided to us from WWMT Channel 3's Jeff Porter as of 5:07 AM.
This current temperatures map from 6:08 AM shows Kalamazoo taking that record temp even lower!
Look on the bright side. It's going to be 51 on Monday. Yeah, insert Michigan weather cliche here.
