FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — An Arctic blast of air will hit the Fort Wayne region after the snow wraps up.

We'll start Tuesday off with temperatures in the teens and wind chills in the single digits.

It's going to be our coldest day yet of the season as we'll see highs struggling to reach the mid 20s.

That's about 30 degrees below average for mid-November.

That will likely break the record of 27 degrees set back on Nov. 12th, 1920, according to the National Weather Service.

Unfortunately things will not be better Tuesday night as we'll likely break the record for the coldest low temperature, too.

That record is 10 degrees, which was set back in 1911.

Make sure you bundle up and stay warm over the next few days.
