FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – The cold is shattering records in the Fort this week.
We have now broken both our record for the coldest high temperature and the coldest low temperature for Jan. 30 in Fort Wayne.
We will only get to -8°F by Wednesday afternoon.
We did break not only our record low of -8°F set in 1966 with -13°F, but also our record coldest high temp for January 30.
It was 0°F at midnight breaking the old lowest maximum temp of 6°F set back in 1977.
In these types of temperatures, frostbite is possible within 10 minutes to any exposed skin.
Cover your mouth too as the cold air could damage your lungs while you breathe in the -10s temps.
Hypothermia will also take hold within minutes if not dressed correctly for these temps.
