Findlay could see record-setting lows

If the weather forecasters are correct, Findlay will see a record-low temperature tonight, and maybe on Tuesday, too.

The National Weather Service predicts tonight’s low temperature in Findlay will be around 14 degrees below zero. WTOL-TV meteorologist Robert Shiels, who provides forecasts to The Courier, is predicting a low of minus 15.

Either reading would break the city’s record low temperature for Jan. 27. That mark is 10 below, set in 1915, according to the Findlay Water Pollution Control Center, which keeps the city’s weather records. Those records go back to 1894.

If the temperature reaches 14 or 15 below tonight and stays there very long, a second record could fall early Tuesday.

Findlay’s record low for Jan. 28 is minus 13, set in 1963.

The National Weather Service predicts a high Tuesday of minus 1, and a low of minus 11. WTOL-TV expects a low Tuesday of minus 10.

After Tuesday, Findlay’s temperatures are expected to stay above zero for the rest of the week.
