The post says in that time, the recorded wind chill has dropped below -50 only three times.

The current forecast is predicting a wind chill in Cheyenne 0f -51 for early Thursday morning. It's possible that the forecast wind chill may actually plunge below the all-time known Cheyenne record of -56, set in 1963.
