More Cold in the Metro: Tuesday Off to a Frigid Start

February 06, 2018 10:05 AM

Tuesday got off to a frigid start in the Twin Cities with below zero temperatures and wind chills of near -20.

And KSTP's Ken Barlow said things aren't likely to warm up much. Barlow's forecast calls for a high of just 10 degrees Tuesday in the Twin Cities, and a sunny start that gives way to increasing clouds.


It was even colder up north in Embarrass where the National Weather Service reported a temperature of -37 Tuesday morning.

Light snow is likely Tuesday night with around an inch or less of accumulation. Barlow said that snow should taper off between 3 and 5 a.m. Wednesday with an overnight low of 2.

An occasional flurry is possible during the day Wednesday, but otherwise the forecast calls for partial sunshine with a high of 15. And the partly sunny conditions are expected to continue Thursday, when a high of 12 is forecast.

But Barlow said there is a slight chance of more light snow developing toward evening.
