MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Another bitterly cold day across much of the state.

In northern Minnesota, overnight lows fell as low as 35 below zero.

And winter weather advisories are out for a large part of southern Minnesota from Worthington in the southwest to the Twin Cities area.

Chris Franks is with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minn.

“We kind of dodged a little bit of a bullet. There were heavier accumulations in Nebraska, we were on the fringe,” Franks said.

Still the light snow seems to be causing a number of spin outs and accidents around the metro.

Lt. Eric Roeske is with the Minnesota State Patrol.

“We see this a lot when we have these light snow falls. It’s not enough to slow people down, and as a result when they do need to stop, they end up losing control,” Roeske said.

A weather fact, since 2 p.m. the wind chill has been at or above 0. That’s after 86 hours of below zero wind chills.
