(FOX 9) - The first sub zero temperature of the season for the Twin Cities metro area was reported Saturday morning.
According to FOX 9 Meteorologist Cody Matz, it's the latest in the season that MSP Airport has recorded its first negative temperature on record.
The previous record was shared by the years 2012, 2002 and 1889 when a -1-degree temperature was recorded on Jan. 18 of those years.
Meanwhile, temperatures are close to 40 below zero in International Falls and other parts of the north. It's just the 13th time since 2000 that International Falls has been -38 degrees or colder.
Minnesota typically has a few cities every season get into the negative 40s, so it's not totally uncommon to see temperatures this cold.
