On this Day in Weather History...
In 1989, an Arctic airmass spread southeast across the Central Plains and Eastern United States. A staggering 137 cities set record lows for the date, 35 of which were record lows for December. One such location accomplishing both feats was Wichita, which chilled out with a low of 16 below zero. Morning lows of 23 degrees below zero in Kansas City, 26 below in Concordia, and 27 below in Goodland Kansas were all time record lows for the three locations.
