Another round of arctic air has arrived in Minnesota, pushing temperatures below zero across the state.
The wind is making those subzero temperatures feel like 10 to 25 degrees below in some parts of the state. The National Weather Service advised those heading outdoors to take extra precautions to avoid frostbite.
High temperatures Tuesday didn't make it much above zero. The mercury was 12 below in the Twin Cities Tuesday morning, 22 below at Bemidji and 26 below in Ely and Hibbing.

The temperate will drop to -2, with 1 to 2 inches of snow expected to fall in the metro overnight.

"A reinforcing shot of cold air moves in behind the snow, which means highs will stay in the single digits on Wednesday, with overnight lows Wednesday night getting down into the teens below zero," meteorologist Dave Dahl said.

Dave said it might be tough to get above zero on Thursday, before the next warm front moves in. 

As for the "bright spot" in the forecast, it looks like Friday is it--with temperatures in the mid to upper 20s. The warmer temps are expected to bring in some more snow.
