MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – As most Minnesotans watched the Vikings playoff game Sunday afternoon, snow will be falling across the state, with a chance of a few inches stacking up outside U.S. Bank Stadium.

A snow system moved into the Twin Cities metro around noontime and linger into the evening hours. Most of the Twin Cities got about two inches of snow. After the storm system moves east into Wisconsin, temperatures will plunge overnight as a blast of arctic air settles over the state.

Highs on MKL Day won’t likely climb above zero for most of Minnesota. Additionally, the wind chills will be brutal.

The National Weather Service says it’ll feel like 24 below in the metro Monday morning, with even more frigid factors to the west and northwest.

Around Fergus Falls it’ll feel around 40 below. In such cold, frostbite can set in on exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for southern and western Minnesota for Sunday night, and it’s expect to expand to other parts of the state Monday.

The arctic cold is expect to linger until Tuesday morning. After that, there’ll be days of sunshine and temperatures climbing above freezing.
