Brrr. Temperatures dip to low teens, single digits tonight

Most of the state will feel a burst of winter cold Monday night as arctic air blankets the region.

The National Weather Service says mid 20-degree temperatures will feel much colder because of strong wind gusts that will drop wind chills into the single digits.

The wind should die down overnight as temperatures fall to single digits in some places -- the coldest so far this season. Expect a low of about 10 degrees in the Twin Cities Monday night into Tuesday morning, forecasters say.

"We have not seen these kind of numbers since mid-March," KSTP meteorologist Patrick Hammer said.

Minnesota Public Radio said temps in some areas of northern Minnesota could drop below zero. International Falls could hit -2 degrees, the National Weather Service says.

A little farther south in St. Cloud, the low is expected to be 6 degrees, which is well below the average of 24 degrees, according to the Associated Press.

FOX 9 say the metro should dip to 11 degrees overnight with wind chills near zero.

Think of this "as a cold weather appetizer," the Star Tribune's Paul Douglas said. Forty-degree temperatures should return by the end of the week. Douglas says the "main course" is about a week away with snow in the forecast.
