HURLEY, Wis. (AP) - Dangerously cold temperatures have settled into northern areas of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Readings plummeted to 33 below zero in Bigfork, Minn., Friday morning. Longville, Minn., isn't far behind with 29 below. That's without factoring in the wind chill.

Hurley schools closed Friday in far northern Wisconsin because of the deep freeze. The temperature hovered around 15 below in Hayward and Siren. Daytime highs weren't expected to crack zero.  Click here to get the forecast on our weather page.

Some school districts delayed the start of classes by two hours, including Blackduck and Fond du Lac Ojibwe in Minnesota.  Click here for a complete list of closings in the Northland.
