For snow-weary Minnesotans, there's no accumulating snow in the forecast for the next handful of days. But we are about to get punched by the cold, dead hands of Old Man Winter as another blast of abnormally cold Arctic air plunges into Minnesota Saturday night through early next week. 

The forecast high temp in the Twin Cities on Saturday is 18 degrees, but up north in Bemidji it'll only reach around 5 degrees. It's a sign of what's coming. 

Overnight into Sunday morning wind chill readings will dive in the the negative 20s and 30s, and the same thing goes for Sunday night into Monday morning. 


It'll be cold enough that the wind chill will be well below zero, even in the metro area, from late Saturday night until Monday afternoon. 

"Bus stop wind chills on Monday morning look to range from -25F to -30F," the NWS Twin Cities says. 


The brutal cold escapes back up into Canada on Tuesday and temps really start to warm into the 20s and maybe even 30 in the Twin Cities late next week.
