Bitter cold set to return for Tuesday morning


Light snow is expected Monday afternoon, and then the arctic wind chills return for Tuesday morning.

Clouds are expected to increase throughout the day, and with that comes the chance for an inch or two of snow by Monday night.

Snow, which is expected mainly before 7 p.m. in the Twin Cities, could make roads slick and possibly slow down the evening commute.

Huttner says this clipper system has the potential to create one of those "low-snow but high-impact snow events" – he gave the p.m. commute a hassle factor of six out of 10.

Wind chill advisory Monday into Tuesday

High temperatures will be in the single digits above zero for most of Minnesota Monday, but strong northwest winds are expected to develop later in the day.

That has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a wind chill advisory for the southern half of the state Monday night until about noon Tuesday.

The combination of below-zero temperatures and northwest winds of 10-20 mph will make it feel like 25- to 34-below zero outside, with the coldest wind chills expected around 6 a.m. Tuesday. (See temperature map below.)

Wind chills this cold could cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes unless proper precautions are taken, the weather service notes. (Check the National Weather Service's wind chill chart here for more information.)

'Downright balmy' Thursday

Temperatures will start to warmup by mid-week. The high for the Twin Cities Wednesday is in the teens, and by Thursday the high is in the upper 20s, according to the National Weather Service.

Huttner says Thursday looks "downright balmy" as temps push the 30-degree mark.

There's a chance for snow Friday, reports note, and then we're in for another cold weekend where we could see below-zero temperatures by Sunday morning.
