Plunging temperatures breaking records


GREEN BAY (AP/WKOW) -- The arctic air in Wisconsin is breaking records, even before the coldest air of the season arrives next week.

Green Bay set a low temperature record Friday morning, when the chill plunged to negative 18.  According to the National Weather Service, that tops the 17 below mark last recorded in 1979.

Antigo also set a record Friday at minus 25.  That's without the wind chill factor. 

A previous record of 22 below was also set in 1979. The weather service has posted a wind chill warning from 6 p.m. Sunday to noon on Tuesday as even colder air arrives.
