Weather Blog: Deep Freeze Saturday, Snow Sunday

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota and much of the Upper Midwest is being chilled by the coldest air of the season to date. Temperatures fell to 11 degrees below zero at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Saturday morning with a wind chill of -25.

Due to the dangerously cold wind chills, there is a Wind Chill Advisory in effect for the Twin Cities metro until 12 p.m. Areas of western and northwestern Minnesota, where wind chills could approach -40, are under a Wind Chill Warning.

It’s not just the cold, though. There’s another round of snow on the way. A very light, dry snow will move in from the southwest after midnight. Expect steady snowfall throughout the day on Sunday with shovel-worthy totals developing. The heaviest snow band will be from the Twin Cities into southern Minnesota, with two to four inches expected by Monday morning.
