Super Bowl visitors are definitely getting a taste of Minnesota winter.The biggest challenger on Super Bowl Sunday is the arctic air keeping wind chills well below zero.
KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas said the highs Sunday will be near 6 degrees, but gusty winds will keep wind chills around 15 degrees below zero. Overnight, it could dip to 25 below.
Super Bowl LII will likely be record-breaking as the coldest in history, well outdoors at least. After guests make it through security checkpoints, U.S. Bank Stadium will be a tropical 70 degrees. The record for coldest Super Bowl stands with Detroit in 1982 when temperatures reached 16 degrees.
Visitors should bundle to avoid frostbite. Exposed skin is at risk for frostbite after 30 minutes.
Looking ahead, Monday is slightly warmer, but still well below the average for this time of year. One inch of accumulating snow is possible, Yuhas said.
KSTP Meteorologist Sam Ryan said this is one of the five coldest mornings in Minnesota this season.
