Today's weather briefing from Novak Weather focuses on Minnesota being stuck in another shot of cold air that will last through Friday before a slight bump up in temperatures for the weekend. 

Look at the HRRR animation for wind chill values in Minnesota through midday Thursday. We're going to dip below zero and stay below zero the entire time, with especially rough conditions in western/northwestern Minnesota.

And while it's expected to stay dry in Minnesota for the next week or longer, the South is getting rocked by a major winter storm that will dump upwards of a foot of snow in Missouri and Illinois and perhaps more than an inch of ice in places like Tennessee and Kentucky.
