Bitter cold lingers with more snow on the horizon


We are still two weeks away from the official start of winter, but you wouldn't know it by the temperatures being reported across Minnesota on Saturday.

The National Weather Service says the coldest temperature recorded around the state were in central Minnesota. Randall bottomed out at -28. While Carver and Little Falls fell to -27.

The bitter cold will continue Saturday night, especially in northern Minnesota where once again there is a Wind Chill Advisory in effect. With air temperatures expected to fall to between -15 and -25, in northern Minnesota, the wind chill could reach -40 for the second consecutive night.

As if the cold wasn't enough, more snow will begin to move into southern Minnesota starting Saturday night and lasting through the day on Sunday. Forecasters say between 2-5 inches of snow are expected across a broad swath of southern Minnesota.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the weather service. It covers the majority of southern Minnesota, starting in extreme southwestern Minnesota cuts across the state through the Metro Area.

KARE 11 reports that snow will be falling as you wake up Sunday morning. 

That snowfall is expected to last into Sunday evening. The heaviest snow is expected to be south of the Metro in parts of southeastern Minnesota.

That news might come as a relief for some in northern Minnesota who are still trying to dig out from the last round.
