Brutally cold to round out 2017


Dangerously cold temperatures have returned to much of the Midwest to round out the month of December.  An Alberta Clipper provided southern Minnesota and the metro with another fresh coating of snow on Friday and then departed eastward, but as it did so, it dragged in some brutally cold air.  While temperatures were still several degrees or more away from record lows, the cold temperatures and the semi gusty breezes allowed the wind chills to drop to ridiculous levels.  Peak chills ranged anywhere from around -30° in La Crosse, to -40° in the metro, to -50° toward Fargo.  While winds will likely lighten up slightly going through the weekend, dangerously cold temperatures will likely hang around through New Year’s Day with Wind Chill Warnings and advisories posted into Monday afternoon.  Stay warm!
