December 30, 2012 Low Temps

Early Sunday morning—December 30, 2012—was very cold across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.  The mercury officially dipped into the single digits for the first time in 10 months in Rockford!  February 11, 2012 was the last time we were in the single digits.


Another interesting tidbit of information is the fact that Rockford has not fallen below zero in almost 2 years!  February 10, 2011 was the last time that happened.  Temperatures were extremely frigid that morning with a low of -20 degrees!

Given the forecast, temperatures are not expected to fall below zero on New Years Eve.  That will mark only the second time in recorded history where temperatures have remained above zero for an entire year!  The only other time this has happened in Rockford was just ten years ago in 2002!
