MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After Monday’s bitter cold and snow, Minnesota is “enjoying” a slight warm up with high temps above 0 degrees. But that will all change starting Tuesday night.

Wind speeds are increasing, so a wind chill warning is in effect for all of Minnesota and western Wisconsin until around late morning Wednesday.

On Wednesday morning, it’ll feel 30 to 40 below zero in the metro and to the south. For the northern half of Minnesota, it’ll feel like 40 to 50 below zero. In those conditions, frostbite can develop in less than 10 minutes.

“It doesn’t warm up much by the afternoon – only about 4 below zero for a high (in the metro),” meteorologist Matt Brickman said.

Light snow is also expected Thursday, with about an inch expected in the Twin Cities.

“That’s all we got (Monday night) as well, but that was enough to cause some major headaches out on the roads. No big warm up, so we’ll just keep adding to the snowpack Thursday – with more cold air coming in Friday,” Brickman said.
