MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The National Weather Service has issued yet another widespread wind cooling advice to Minnesota.
WCCO Meteorologist Riley O’Connor says the announcement will be in effect until Thursday noon and will be reissued overnight and move forward to Friday noon. It could at times feel like minus 30 to minus 40 degrees. Frostbite can attack exposed skin in less than 20 minutes under these conditions.
Twin Cities will have a temperature of 2 degrees on Thursday, with pretty much the entire state in the same frozen boat. It’s getting even colder in western and northwestern Minnesota.
O’Connor says a fast-moving system will drop light snow over the state from Friday afternoon to early Saturday morning. It will reach the subway around noon. Snow totals will only vary between a pollen in southern Minnesota and over 2 inches in Arrowhead.
Temperatures will warm up for the teens Friday through Monday, with more snow options Sunday and Monday. We dive back to single-digit heights next Tuesday.
