It's cold: Subzero temps expected for end of 2014

A new week will bring us a new batch of Arctic air – just in time to round out the final days of 2014.

Look for partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies each day through New Year's Eve. Temperatures are going to plummet, though.

Highs Monday afternoon are going to limp into the single digits. Lows should drop into the below zero single digits Monday night.

A wind chill advisory is in effect until noon Tuesday for much of the state – excluding the Twin Cities and a few other counties on the Minnesota-Wisconsin border.

Tuesday likely coldest of the week

The coldest night of winter so far is expected Monday night, with lows between minus 5 and minus 15 and wind chills getting as low as 35 below zero, the National Weather Service says.

A 5-10 mph north breeze will produce wind chill values in the below zero teens as you head out the door Tuesday morning. The forecast high Tuesday afternoon is around 5 degrees (above zero).

Tuesday will likely be the coldest day of the week.

New Year's Eve

Expect a cool, breezy, but sunny day Wednesday. Temperatures will reach the lower teens. However, stiff southwest winds should keep wind chills below zero even through the warmest part of the day.

Temps remain fairly steady as we approach the strike of midnight Wednesday night. No snow is expected, so traveling shouldn't be a problem.

Wednesday evening forecast for the Twin Cities:

9 p.m.: Partly cloudy, 8 degrees, wind chill of negative 8 degrees.

10 p.m.: Partly cloudy, 8 degrees, wind chill of negative 8 degrees.

11 p.m.: Partly cloudy, 8 degrees, wind chill of negative 7 degrees.

12 a.m.: Partly cloudy, 8 degrees, wind chill of negative 7 degrees.

1 a.m.: Partly cloudy, 9 degrees, wind chill of negative 6 degrees.

More-seasonal air returns for the first few days of 2015. The forecast is calling for highs to be back in the lower 20s both Thursday and Friday.

Look for a few flurries Thursday with a slightly better chance of light snow on Friday.
