Indianapolis Is Literally as Cold as the South Pole Today

At 7.a.m., the temperature in Indianapolis was -12, matching a record set in 1887.

INDIANAPOLIS -- You know it's cold outside. But it's literally South Pole-level cold outside today.

At 7 a.m., the temperature at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica was -11 degrees. 

Around the same time in Indianapolis, the temperature was -12, matching a Jan. 2 record set in 1887. 

So it was actually colder in Indianapolis than at the South Pole on Tuesday.

If you're looking for a nice, warm getaway, maybe check out Alaska? Temperatures in Anchorage, Alaska will reach 37 degrees on Tuesday, about 30 degrees warmer than anything Indy will see.
