MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – If you thought Friday was brutal you may not want to leave the house Saturday.
The high temperature for Friday was 15 degrees, and it happened at 12:01 a.m.
While temperature managed to stay above zero across most of the state, a few spots along the border dipped into subzero ranges.
However, while air temperatures were hovering around 9 degrees in the metro, winds were creating a feel of 10 below outside. Winds blowing between 10 and 25 mph across the state created wind chills of up to 30 below in northern Minnesota.
Moving into Saturday, it only gets colder.
“Air temperatures are getting colder, but it won’t be nearly as blustery,” WCCO Meteorologist Matt Brickman said.
Clear conditions will push temperatures to be as low as 10 degrees below zero without wind chill in the metro.
Then, if the cold wasn’t enough, prepare for snow.
“Snow will be arriving later on Saturday evening,” Brickman said. “It will be on and off throughout the day on Sunday before eventually clearing out by Sunday afternoon.”
Brickman said the metro could expect two to four inches, with some isolated spots seeing as much as six inches.
Luckily, this frigid stretch is hitting around a holiday weekend, and one during which cuddling is encouraged.
