Frigid Temps Grip Minnesota with Dangerous Wind Chills

Updated: 12/11/2013 10:03 PM By: Leslie Dyste

The deep freeze that has gripped Minnesota is more typical of mid-January temperatures. Meteorologist Dave Dahl said temperatures on Wednesday made it just above zero and the low in the morning was close to 10 below zero.

Wednesday overnight will be another cold one, with lows dropping to around 6 below zero.

Temperatures will warm up on Thursday and should make it into the upper teens with highs on Friday climbing into the low 20s.
A rare wind chill advisory was issued for central and northeastern Minnesota through Thursday morning. The National Weather Service says that means frostbite can occur in 10 minutes or less for exposed skin.

Dave says light snow is possible Saturday with more Arctic air for Sunday. He says it won't be nearly as cold as it has been.
