The people of Cedar Rapids can say the weather has shown them another first: 29 degrees below zero. That all-time record was reached at 7:51am Thursday morning as daily record lows were broken in many eastern Iowa cities. Wind Chills dipped to 50 degrees below zero in spots. The previous all-time record low for Cedar Rapids was 28 below zero reached in January of 1974.
More cold is forecasted before temperatures bounce back to the 20s and 30s above zero next week. It is currently 14 degrees below zero and I hope my car starts so I can get to my 5:30 class on time! Burrrrrrrrrrr
