Really cold Wednesday morning, but not a record



You might have seen the temp gauge hit negative-20 on Wednesday morning.

According to Jeff Boyne, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in La Crosse for the past 21 years, the temps are kind of all over the place.

“Temperatures across the county are really highly variable,” Boyne said. “Onalaska there’s a sensor up there, which is minus-13 and west of St. Joseph, which is coldest in the county, is minus-26.”

Boyne said the record for Jan. 26 was set in 1904 at -27 and we’re not getting there Wednesday.

Looking ahead to Thursday, there’s only really one way to go on the thermometer.

“We’re looking at probably 45 to 55 degrees warmer (Thursday) that what we are (Wednesday) morning,” Boyne said.

No snow really in the forecast. Maybe some flurries Thursday morning but Boyne said nothing will accumulate.
