Well, what did you expect from February in Minnesota?

Those heading to the Twin Cities for that game the Vikings aren't playing in should prepare for some frigid festivities.

The National Weather Service says that after a brief warm-up on Tuesday and Wednesday, a blast of Arctic air will arrive in the Twin Cities in time for the weekend.

It'll mean fans from Philadelphia and Boston could expect temperature highs of 5 to 15 degrees on Sunday, and lows of -5 to 5.

It won't be an issue inside the climate-controlled U.S. Bank Stadium, but anyone who's planning on attending tailgating parties and the Super Bowl Live events on Nicollet Mall should plan on wrapping up warm.

And if you want to supplement this with a beer jacket, you can find our guide the best happy hours in downtown Minneapolis right here.
