The coldest temperature ever officially recorded in Wisconsin was -55° F at Couderay on Feb. 4, 1996. There is no practical way to tell whether this was the coldest day on record in all of Wisconsin, but it was a cold day across the northern Midwest.
On Feb. 2, 1996, as the cold air was moving in, Minnesota recorded its coldest day on record, -60°F at Tower.
Couderay is in northwestern Wisconsin, about 70 miles north of Eau Claire. Feb. 4, 1996, was not the coldest day on record in Eau Claire. While Wisconsin isn't as large as Alaska, Texas or some other western states, it is large enough to have widely different weather across the state on any one day.
