Byron's temperature of -24 Jan. 6 landed the town right square on the Jan. 8 edition of The Wall Street Journal. Image submitted.

By David Richards

As expected, temperatures plunged throughout southern Minnesota, throughout a lot of the country actually, on Monday, Jan. 6.

Final marks locally were reported in the -20s without wind chill and in the -50s with it.

It was so cold in Byron that the city's temperature that day made it on the front page of The Wall Street Journal.

"Isn't that cool?" said Mary Blair-Hoeft, city administrator, about the feat.

Literally.

The only problem for the city during the cold stretch, Blair-Hoeft said, was a broken water main off of Byron Avenue near the old City Hall.

The break affected four homes, with water having to be shut off.

The incident occurred at roughly 8:30 a.m. Jan. 6 and was fixed by 4 p.m. the same day.

According to the National Weather Service, in La Crosse, the coldest its ever been in Rochester was -64 in 1982 with wind chill.

The coldest high without wind chill was -22 in 1912, with the coldest low without wind chill, -42 in 1887.
