Arctic air arrives in Minn., NWS issues wind chill warning


The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning across much of Minnesota, from Sunday night through Monday morning, as dangerously cold air blankets the state. A wind chill advisory also remains in effect.

KARE 11 reports high temperatures will struggle to reach 5 degrees above zero in the Twin Cities on Sunday, but Monday is expected to be even colder with the first subzero high in more than four years. Temperatures are expected to rebound slightly on Wednesday and Thursday.

There's also a chance of some light snow throughout the day on Sunday, KSTP reports.

WCCO says wind gusts up to 61 miles-per-hour were reported in Jordan on Saturday as the deep freeze arrived.

Spirit Mountain Ski Area and Spirit Mountain Adventure Park will close early Sunday and Monday due to the extremely cold temperatures and wind chills in the forecast, according to the Pioneer Press.

Meanwhile, Dr. Aaron Burnett, an emergency physician at HealthPartners, told MPR he treats patients who don't recognize the signs of frostbite or hypothermia every year.
