RECORD EVENT REPORT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WICHITA KS
855 PM CST SUN DEC 18 2016

...TEMPERATURE RECORDS BEING SMASHED EAST AND WEST...

ALL OF THOSE CRACKING SOUNDS YOU`VE BEEN HEARING TODAY ARE THOSE OF
TEMPERATURE RECORDS NOT JUST BEING BROKEN...BUT SMASHED.

THIS ARCTIC INVASION IS RIVALING ITS PREDECESSORS...ESPECIALLY 1983.

THE FOLLOWING RECORDS HAVE BEEN SET OR TIED:

ON DECEMBER 17TH...THE LOW TEMPERATURE IN RUSSELL WAS 8 BELOW. THIS
BROKE THE RECORD OF 4 BELOW SET IN 1964.

ON DECEMBER 18TH...THE LOW TEMPERATURE IN RUSSELL WAS 16 BELOW. THIS
SMASHED THE RECORD OF 8 BELOW SET IN 1983.

ON DECEMBER 18TH...THE LOW TEMPERATURE AT WICHITA EISENHOWER AIRPORT
WAS 10 BELOW. THIS SMASHED THE RECORD OF 4 BELOW SET IN 1983.

ON DECEMBER 18TH...THE LOW TEMPERATURE IN SALINA WAS 10 BELOW. THIS
TIED THE RECORD SET IN 1983.

ITS VERY LIKELY THAT CHANUTE SET A RECORD LOW THIS MORNING BUT THEIR
OBSERVING SYSTEM IS OUT OF SERVICE. THEIR RECORD LOW FOR DECEMBER
18TH IS 4 BELOW SET WAY BACK IN 1945. THE LOWS IN IOLA AND PARSONS
WERE BOTH 7 BELOW. CHANUTE MAY HAVE SET OR TIED THEIR COLDEST HIGH
TEMPERATURE FOR DECEMBER 18TH WHICH IS 13 SET IN 1963. THE HIGH AT
IOLA TODAY WAS 10 WHILE PARSONS WAS 15.

THE COLDEST HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORDS FOR WICHITA (5 ABOVE IN 1983)
RUSSELL AND SALINA (BOTH 3 ABOVE IN 1983) WEREN`T EVEN CLOSE TO
BEING BROKEN AS THEIR HIGHS TODAY WERE 12...15 AND 17 RESPECTIVELY.
