February 09, 2018 09:39 AM

It's cold in the Twin Cities - even by February standards.

KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said the normal high this month is 27 degrees. But it won't get close to approaching that in the metro Friday. Barlow's forecast calls for a mix of sun and clouds with a high of just 10 and wind chills ranging from zero to -10 at times.


It will remain cold overnight with the low dropping to around -5. The cold continues Saturday when the high is expected to be only 13 with a low of -2.

However, Barlow said Sunday should bring a warm-up. His forecast calls for partly to mostly sunny conditions, with a high of 23 degrees and a low of 13.

Monday's high is expected to be 23, but there could be a few snow flurries mixed in. The same applies to Tuesday when the forecast is mostly sunny with a high of 25, but the chance of an early flurry or two.

Wednesday's high is expected to be 30, but don't get too comfortable. Barlow's long-range forecast for next Thursday calls for the temperature to plunge back to around zero by the afternoon.
