Welcome to January in Minnesota.

Overnight temperatures were colder than 10-below zero across most of Minnesota, the National Weather Service says, with northern Minnesota seeing temperatures dip into the negative 20s and 30s – and even colder wind chills.

And on Sunday, the temperature will struggle to get above zero. The weather service says highs will range from 5 degrees to 5-below zero across the state.

At 10 a.m., nearly all of Minnesota was still experiencing temperatures below zero, according to the National Weather Service. Flag Island in central Minnesota was one of the coldest places in the state Sunday, still seeing temperatures at 22-below zero at 10 a.m. (See the latest temperature readings here.)

It was so cold Sunday morning, the Vikings' Gjallarhorn broke. Sunday's game against the Seahawks went down in history as the third-coldest NFL game ever played. At kickoff, the temperature was 6-below zero.

A wind chill advisory remained in effect until noon Sunday, which had the National Weather Service warning frostbite and hypothermia are possible if proper precautions aren't taken, so don't forget to wear your hat and gloves if you go outdoors.

Temperatures are expected to moderate this week:
