Dangerous wind chills Monday morning – then a breezy warm-up


Monday morning will start very, very cold.

Here's a look at where we are, as of about 6:15 a.m, the state high coming in at negative 2 degrees.

In addition, a wind chill warning (ranging from minus 35 to minus 45 degree) is in effect until 10 a.m. for most of the northeast quadrant of the state – basically from the Iron Range up to the Canadian border.

The rest of the state is blanketed by a wind chill advisory, also until 10 a.m..

That means frostbite to exposed skin is possible in as few as 10 minutes for some Minnesotans Monday morning. (Click here to see the wind chill frost bite chart.)
