Morning Lows in Illinois – January 6, 2014

While the cold temperatures have been widespread across the Midwest (see map below), my friend Sam Shea, who works for the NWS in Anchorage Alaska, reported that the lows this morning in Alaska are warmer than Illinois. Their temperatures ranged from the low 40s along the southern coast, in the teens and twenties in the interior.

Below is a list of the lows reported so far this morning. The record low for Illinois was -36 degrees, set at Congerville on January 5, 1999. While we have not been close to the record, this is certainly cold enough for me.
