Now that the high winds of Wednesday are settling down, our temperatures have taken yet another dive.

After a brief warm up, the never-ending winter of 2013-14 has re-established its run at record territory, Morning Chief Meteorologist Ken Barlow says.

Ken says this winter is already tied as the 10th coldest on record here in the Twin Cities and the coldest in 35 years. It will continue to be very cold here through early next week with a few bouts of light snow possible from time to time.

The first chance of snow will come Friday with a coating possible. The next round comes later Saturday and Saturday night with more light snow, but much of that storm should slide to the south of most of Minnesota.

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin until 9 a.m. Friday.
