It's brrrrrrrr-utal again: Minnesota temperatures tumble back into the basement


Another blast of cold air is heading to Minnesota, with a bitterly cold Sunday in the forecast.

FOX 9 reports that temperatures will fall steadily on Saturday. We will need to bundle up against harsh wind chill temperatures as another arctic air mass arrives, bringing dangerously cold conditions on Sunday and continuing through the first part of the work week. Wind chills are expected to be 25 to 45 degrees below zero by Sunday morning.

You won't be able to get away from the big chill anywhere in the state. The Northland's News Center in Duluth notes that morning lows in the Twin Ports will bottom out at 18 below.

In Fargo-Moorhead, ValleyNewsLive warns that what it terms "brutally cold air" will take Sunday's lows to the 20s below zero.

In Rochester, KTTC's weatherblog notes that it's rather late in the season for temperatures to be this dangerously frigid; at a time when winter is usually waning, we're dealing with some of the coldest weather of the winter.
