Severe winter storm brings extreme cold temperatures to Adrian


A severe winter storm came barreling through Adrian and surrounding areas, beginning with snowfall late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. The temperature made a steady decline on Sunday and by early Monday morning, it reached the coldest temperatures in the last 20 years. Howling winds, combined with dangerously low temperatures, drove the wind chill to more than 20 degrees below zero. The actual temperature at sunrise on Monday morning was below zero. The extreme weather prompted school cancellations Monday and Tuesday in many area school districts, including Adrian.
