If the snow tried your patience with winter Sunday night, you’re not going to want to see the wind chill possibilities later this week.

According to FOX 9 Chief Meteorologist Ian Leonard, some of the coldest temperatures in years are expected Tuesday through Thursday.

Very dangerous wind chills are expected, so much so that a Wind Chill Watch has been issued for much of the FOX 9 viewing area, including the Twin Cities metro.

Wind chills between -40 and -50 degrees are possible from Tuesday to Thursday.
