Bitter cold morning in the metro before slow warmup
Subzero temperatures and bitter wind are the Valentines the weather is giving to Minnesotans Friday morning.
Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said although temperatures are about the same as they were on Thursday, the wind chill was slightly less frigid. Barlow said wind chills dropped to about 25 degrees below zero Friday, compared with 30 to 35 degrees below zero Thursday.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory Friday morning. The alert states dangerously cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in roughly 10 minutes.
Barlow said temperatures are expected to rise into the double digits Friday afternoon, with 15 degrees possible, and Saturday will see temperatures in the 30s.
