And it’s not even winter yet.
“Indy breaks another record with December 15 snowfall,” reads the headline
On December 15, Indianapolis broke a new record for the amount of snowfall on that day — one that’s been in place for the last 72 years.
The National Weather Service logged a record 4.3 inches of snow at the Indianapolis Airport, easily surpassing the previous record of 3.5 inches set on December 15, 1947.
In November, Indy broke several low temp records including one that had been in place for over a century.
“Indy breaks 108 year record-low temp for November 12,” reads the headline.
The record for the coldest temperature on November 12 in Indianapolis was set in 1911 at 14°.
That record was shattered when temperatures in Indianapolis plunged to just 8°.
Yet another record for Nov 12
November 12, 2019 is now officially the earliest day of the season that the temperature has fallen into the single digits. Before this year, the earliest single-digit reading in the Fall for Indianapolis was on Nov. 17, 1959 when the low reached 4°.
Lest you wonder, that is unseasonably cold. The National Weather Service says the average low for November 12 in Indianapolis is 37° (not even freezing) and the average high is 54°.
Also a snowfall on November 11 more than doubled the previous record
That record was set nearly 25 years ago. On November 11, 1995, 1.2 inches of snow fell in Indianapolis — on November 11, 2019, that record became 2.8 inches of snow.
