Update To What Looks to Be A Record Breaking January

January 27th, 2014 at 3:51 pm by under Weather

Ask anyone in Northeastern Indiana and Northwestern Ohio how this winter has been for them, and many will say, ‘BRUTAL!’ That’s a fair assessment. We’re still anticipating near record low temperatures by Tuesday morning. The record low for January 28 was set back 51 years ago in 1963 with a low of -16°. We are going to come VERY close to the record, if not break it by Tuesday morning. On the other side of this “wintry coin” has been the incredible amount of snow we’ve had this month. We’ve been following the record for snowiest January on record very closely. Here are the standings as of January 27th. We’re VERY close to the top. All we need is .2″ to be the offical snowiest January on record, and it’s looking likely.

What’s just as impressive is the total snow we’ve seen so far this winter. Meteorologists consider winter as December 1st through the end of February. We’re not even into February, and we’re ALREADY the 6th snowiest winter on record! That means we are very likely to climb the ladder of snowiest winters on record even further, because we average more than 7 inches of snow during the month of February.

    I saw a post by some guys on facebook that report the weather for Adams and Wells county and they said the Euro model is showing 2 to 3 feet of snow for us in the first 2 weeks of February. Have you also seen this in the Euro Model and how close are the other models to this scenario?

    I’m seeing the same thing. Nice size storm on Friday into Saturday. And there is a paralyzingly monster hitting on the 5th. I’m excited to hear the entire teams thoughts on next week!!

      Right now the models are favoring your “Monster” storm south of our area by about 500 miles. This storm is really no different than the storm we had at the beginning of January. Don’t believe everything you hear or read on the internet.

    We were asking what you were seeing as we are reading or seeing that stuff from other weather sources also. If by you telling us not to believe everything we read on the internet we could include this site also as you are on the internet also, just saying.

    There are also newer reports out about that massive winter storm for the 4th to the 6th of February hitting our area now and those are coming from other weather sites. We come here to get your perspective on it not to belittle you or anything because we respect what you do and how well you do it.
