Today is the anniversary of Indy’s coldest day. The morning low in Indianapolis on January 19, 1994 was 27 below zero. Indy’s had over 10 days when the temperature was -20 degrees or colder since weather records began in the late 1800s.
Coldest temperature ever officially recorded in the state of Indiana is -36 degrees, on the same day in 1994, in New Whiteland, just south of Indy.
January 19 also chilled these cities:
BTW: The hottest temp ever in Indy was 106 degrees. It’s a record set in three years: 1901, 1934, and 1936. Many high temperature records of the Dust Bowl era still stand, but Indy got close during the hot summer of 2012. The high temp hit 105 on two different days.
