Ann Arbor expected to be colder than South Pole on Wednesday
The South Pole in Antarctica is expected to be balmier than Ann Arbor on Wednesday, Jan. 30. The Ann Arbor area, like most of Michigan, is on track to experience a blast of bitterly cold Arctic air Wednesday that could beat temperatures down to record lows, the National Weather Service says.
As of 2 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, the weather service projects temperatures as low as 19 below zero Wednesday. Meanwhile, 8 degrees below zero is forecast at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica, where it is summer. If the forecast proves accurate, the former low temperature record for Jan. 30, 11 degrees below zero, set in 1911, will be broken, according to data provided by University of Michigan climate research scientist Frank J. Marsik.
The National Weather Service also issued a wind chill warning to take effect at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29 through 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31. The wind child is expected to dip to between 25 and 40 degrees below zero, cold enough to cause the onset of frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes. The governor of Michigan has declared a state of emergency.

‘there is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky.’
-percy bysshe shelly
i’m not sure about today’s
hail, rain, snow, sun, wind, lightning, and thunder.
i suppose some could classify these as ‘luster’,
but probably not ‘harmony.’
‘and the sun took a step back,
the leaves lulled themselves to sleep,
and autumn was awakened.’
