Iowa Endures Record-Breaking Cold

  • Photo
DES MOINES (AP) - The bitter cold that has gripped Iowa for the past several days has reached a new low, but relief is finally in sight.

Waterloo set a daily record low for Jan. 16 of 34 degrees below zero early Friday. It also ties the all-time record low for winter set on March 1, 1962.

Other daily record lows were set in Mason City, at 31 below, and in Ottumwa, at minus 20.

The cold snap is about over. Miles Schumacher of the National Weather Service says temperatures are starting to climb. Early Friday, temperatures had climbed above zero in western Iowa as southerly winds flow into the region. Highs on Saturday are expected to reach the 20s and 30s.
