INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The February freeze continues across central Indiana.

Monthly temperatures through Monday night have averaged 21.3 degrees, which is currently ranked as the eighth coldest February on record. The average temperature for the month is 32.1 degrees.

The cold spell is expected to last through the end of the month. Tuesday morning’s low temperature of -6 degrees shattered the previous record low temperature of -2 degrees set 115 years ago in 1900. More record low temperatures could be set later this week.

This cold streak could place this month as one of the five coldest on record in Indianapolis.

The Storm Track 8 Team will continue to track the cold through the end of the month — maybe even into early March.
