Coldest January Air in Years

The New Year began on an especially cold note. In fact, last week saw some of the coldest air eastern Iowa has seen in years. Waterloo saw a low temperature of -21° three times in the first week of 2018. Monday morning, Tuesday morning and Saturday morning all cooled to the lowest temperature the airport had recorded in January since 2014.
