Minnesotans woke up to another bitter cold day Monday, but a break from the Arctic air is now in sight.

The day started with temperatures well below zero and a wind chill that dropped as low as -25 to -30 at times. Temperatures were expected to plunge below zero again Monday night.

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for a portion of Minnesota and western Wisconsin until 10 a.m. Tuesday. The advisory does not include the Twin Cities. meteorologist Dave Dahl says Tuesday should rebound back into the teens above zero, with temperatures near 30 on Wednesday.

He says we could get a few inches of snow late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, which could cause a slow morning commute.
