First bitter cold, then snow


Most of you probably noticed if you stepped outside this morning that it's cold. Really cold. Frozen-nose-hair cold.

KARE 11 says the metro woke up to about -12 degrees Friday with a -29 wind chill.

One of the coldest temperatures in the state dipped to -33 degrees in Big Fork, according to the Associated Press. Bemidji and Longville weren't far behind at -29 degrees.

Highs in the Twin Cities will climb back above zero to about 2 degrees.

The good news: FOX9 says temperatures will continue to rise to the upper teens this weekend. The other news (good or bad, depending on the your feelings toward Minnesota winters): snow is on the way.

After the weekend's over, the metro could see a solid 4-5 inches of snow on the ground, according to KSTP. Light snow is expected Friday night, followed by a couple inches Saturday and a couple more inches Sunday.

WCCO goes further into the week and predicts the snow will continue Monday into Tuesday and another light snow Thursday.
