We picked up 10" of snow from yesterday's winter storm, deepening our snow pack to around 17".

Now, we're at -9F with a wind speed of 24 mph, creating a wind chill of -36. Lows could dip to -20F tonight, with wind chills between -40 and -50F

WOW! It really makes my single digit forecast low and subzero wind chill readings sound balmy in comparison. :blink:

Also props to the ECMWF (European Model) for sniffing out this Arctic Outbreak a week in advance before the other models and sticking to it's guns on it happening. :thumbsup:

And to add, pattern shows a mild turn around. +EPO, +NAO going to do the dirty work. All next week looks in the 50's.

The low at DFW dropped down to 15 degrees this morning, and the lowest reported wind chill was 1 degree.  I know that may sound lame to what most of you are dealing with, but that's still unusually cold for Dallas.

(Had I been back in Norman I would have dealt with a low temperature of 4 degrees and a minimum wind chill of -9 degrees.)

12.6F currently here using the weather station from Georgia Tech (since it's the closest to where I live) from wunderground.com Wind chill is 0F

The airport is 13F, wind chill is -4F!

This is the second coldest I've ever seen it get here in my entire life I can remember.

EDIT: I didn't realize Wunderground displays a weather station from TWC HQ with my zipcode. It says the temperature is 10.6F with a wind chill of -4F currently.

Thanks to this Arctic blast, my low this morning was -5F.  Every climate site in my area set a new record low.

Fall River, -9, 57, 13 = 110 Total Temperature Swing.

Norwood, -15, 57, 12 = 132 Total Temperature Swing.

We shattered our record low of 10F set back in 1970 when we dropped down to 6F! Wind chill hovered around -10F at that time.

This morning is now the coldest morning I have ever been through (well that I can remember) in my 21 years living down here. We got down to 8F back in the January 2003 Arctic Outbreak. The 6F was the coldest temps we had seen since February 1996. Our high today was 25F.

Wow. You were colder than man last night. Got down to 7.6 degrees. Further west, NYC got down to 4 degrees, breaks the record (I've been waiting several years for NYC to see a rec low).  :dance:

It looks like the next arctic outbreak is going to be confined farther north and east.  The current NWS forecast shows my area dropping to highs in the mid-40s at best, with lows in the upper-20s.  That's nothing compared to what we had earlier this winter! :P

Completely forget what I said a few days ago. :repost:  Forecasts are now showing two big drops in temperatures, one tomorrow and one (more major) on Thursday.  If the forecast verifies, the high on Thursday will only be 28 24 degrees, with a low that night dropping down into the mid-teens upper single-digits. :brr:

I am so sick of winter. It's been too cold and it's staying cold. No change in this pattern for the foreseeable future.  :hmm: Friday morning it's supposed to go down to 10 degrees!  :brr:
