List of coldest wind chills in Minnesota Thursday morning

WhY aRe MY tEEtH chAtTErRing?

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.
