Below Zero Temps Not That Uncommon

January 8, 2014, 5:25 PM by Brian Karstens

Below Zero Temps Not That Uncommon

Temperatures plunged to or below zero once again in much of KELOLAND, making this the 11th morning in a row for Sioux Falls. In addition, there were nine days before this arctic outbreak where morning lows dropped below zero. Needless to say, it's been a cold winter so far.

Aberdeen and Watertown have now had 12 days in a row of below zero lows. Tonight, temperatures will once again drop below zero in some areas, but we are hoping this is the last time we'll see the mercury in this range for several days.

While it is impressive, a long stretch of at or below zero lows is not uncommon. In January and February of 2007, Sioux Falls had 15 consecutive days of overnight lows at or below zero. 

What makes this outbreak of cold more impressive is the average of the high and low together, which amounts to just four tenths of a degree above zero. If we stayed at this level of cold the whole month, we would definitely set new records.

However, the forecast ahead would suggest that's not going to happen...and most people won't be complaining.
