Cold Start to Tuesday, but Double-Digit High Temperature Could Follow

January 02, 2018 09:42 AM

The first Tuesday of 2018 started out awfully cold in the Twin Cities.

Wind chills plunged as low as -30 early in the day, and a wind chill advisory was scheduled to remain in effect until 10 a.m.


But KSTP's Ken Barlow said things are expected to warm up - at least a little. His forecast for Tuesday calls for a high of 11 degrees, which would mark just the second time in nine days the temperature has reached double digits (above zero, that is).

That could be followed by some flurries or snow showers this evening before clearing later as the low falls back to zero. And it gets cold again Wednesday. Barlow's forecast calls for a high of 6 and a low of -10.

Though it is expected to be sunny.

Barlow said Thursday and Friday don't look much warmer. The high Thursday is expected to be just 3 with a low of -12, followed by a high of 4 and a low of -4 Friday.

But the weekend could bring a real warm-up. The high Saturday is expected to be 15 with a low of 10 and partial sunshine. Then Sunday, the high could reach all the way to 26 with a low of 14.
