It's an ice box outside in Minnesota Thursday morning as overnight lows plummeted below zero with winds whipping around to make the "feels like" temperature even worse. 

At 6 a.m. the wind chill at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was a numbing -28F. 

The wind chill in Sauk Centre was -37F at 6 a.m., and if you were to head a bit further northwest you'd go into the deep freezer of Grand Forks where they had a wind chill reading of -44F around 6:30 a.m. 


The wind chill advisory was extended for the Twin Cities from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m. as wind chill readings are forecast to stay -25F to -35F through the late morning. 

In the Northland, temperatures will again dip below zero overnight into Friday morning with wind chill values ranging from -20F to -35F. 


The high temp in Minneapolis is expected to surge to a balmy 4 degrees above zero Thursday, serving as a wintry preview before a snowstorm slams Minnesota Friday and Saturday, with some healthy snow totals in addition to strong winds that'll cause blowing, drifting and visibility issues on Saturday.
