Bitterly Cold AGAIN!

Posted: Updated:
Meteorologist Cody Matz Meteorologist Cody Matz

We are running out of fingers to count all of our cold blasts this winter, but we are in the midst of another one. VERY STRONG winds started off our arctic outbreak as gusts topped 60 mph in some spots with 50+mph gusts even in the metro causing blizzard to near blizzard conditions across the area. Now every single spot experienced wind gusts over 35 mph, so to prevent writing every city down, I am highlighting the higher gusts of 45mph or higher:

62 Jackson
60 Redwood Falls
59 Jordan
58 Jeffers, Waseca, New Ulm, Madelia
56 Lakeville, Pennock
55 Marietta, Canby
54 Morris, Clara City
53 Ellendale, St. James, Mankato, Searles, Madison, Hanley Falls
52 Glenwood, Owatonna, Twin Lakes
51 Cannon Falls, Fairmont, Hutchinson
50 Belgrade
49 Stanton, St. Paul Airport, South St. Paul, Starbuck, Benson
48 Robbinsdale, New Germany, Blue Earth, Fairbault
47 MSP Airport, Clearwater, Eden Prairie, Litchfield, Sauk Centre
46 Rice, Montevideo, Prior Lake, St. Cloud
45 Red Wing, Cambridge, Glencoe, Rogers


It also dropped wind chills to dangerous levels with EVERY location experiencing numbers colder than 30 below zero. So once again, I will highlight the coldest of the cold with chills of 40 below or colder (except for our official measurement at MSP Airport which happened to come up a degree shy of that figure.)

-51 Bemidji
-50° Duluth, Hibbing
-49° Grand Rapids, Rice
-48° Hermantown
-47° International Falls, Ely, Alexandria, Fergus Falls, Roseau
-46° Longville, Glenwood, Granite Ledge, Frederick, Detroit Lakes
-45° Ash Lake, Belgrade, Balsam Lake
-44° Sartell, Starbuck, Long Prairie, Harding, Virginia
-43° Waconia, Melrose
-42° Bruno, New Germany, Lakeville, Paynesville, Ellendale, Morris, Clearwater, New Hope, Pennock, Hutchinson, Litchfield, Milaca, Princeton
-41° Mendota Heights, W. St. Paul, Apple Valley, St. Cloud, Benson, Forest Lake, Cannon Falls, Osseo, Cambridge, Mora, Ellsworth
-40° Brainerd, Hinckley, Cumberland, Sauk Rapids, Madelia, New Ulm, Clara City, Woodville, Baldwin, Lake Elmo, Buffalo, Red Wing, Champlin, Maple Grove, Brooklyn Park
-39° MSP Airport


Now, even though winds have lightened up, temperatures will likely tumble a few more degrees tonight making it feel just as cold. I will have a list of the 2 day lowest temps come midday Tuesday. Stay warm!!!
