It's a cold day for lovers; colder than normal week coming up

It's a cold day - one of the coldest Valentine's Days in Minnesota history. High temperatures were expected to reach only the single digits around the state, after overnight lows were below zero.

Strong winds are bringing wind chills to 10 to 20 below zero.

But that didn't stop hundreds of folks from participating in Cupid's Undie Run, a fundraiser for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, Saturday morning.

The half-naked runners jogged up and down the length of Nicollet Mall before finding warmth inside. The Undie Run is held in about three dozen cities across the country each year, but it's likely the one in Minneapolis was the coldest of the day.

Many others decided to spend the day inside a nice, warm mall. The Mall of America has been packed, and some shoppers were having a hard time finding a place to park.

We'll see another round of bitter cold overnight Saturday night, before temperatures warm up just a little bit in the next couple of days, forecasters say.

Temperatures over the next week or so will be quite a bit below average for this time of year, according to KSTP meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas – from 10 to 25 degrees below average. The normal readings for this time of year are in the low teens for lows, and near 30 degrees for highs.
