A winter storm failed to deliver on a promise of heavy amounts of snow in Jackson County, but predictions of near-record low temperatures and extremely low wind chills hit the mark.

Monday morning’s low temperature of minus 9 at 9:08 a.m. tied the low reached in 1924, according to the Brownstown Central High School weather station. The lowest wind chill of the day through noon Monday was minus 29 recorded at 11:29 a.m. The county received less than an inch of snow.

Despite the bitterly cold temperatures, there had not been any requests for shelters by county residents.
