The week ahead is looking to be way below average when it comes to temperatures. In fact, a few days will down right dangerous. An arctic air mass and strong northwest winds will make going back to work and school on Monday not only uncomfortable, but downright dangerous. Wind Chill Advisories and Warnings blanket the region through Monday morning.



Chills of -15° to -30° will be common and can caused frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes. Remember to bundle up and prepare for the worst. "Cover your cracks and crevices"! Take a look at the forecasted Wind chill values come Monday morning.



Here is an interesting link that will further explain wind chill and it even has a wind chill calculator to help you determine the "Feels Like" temperature in your neck of the woods.

If that is not enough, some of us will be clipped by a clipper late Monday into early Tuesday. 3-6 inches of snow is not out of the question in areas of southern Minnesota. As of now, the snow should mainly fall just south of the immediate metro. However, a small shift in the track of the storm can bring accumulations farther north. Below is a look at the current track of our next clipper system and an early look at some possible snow totals.



Stay warm everyone and stay tuned! Frazier
