Wind chills stay dangerously cold tonight into Tuesday

Here’s your Monday evening forecast for January 15, 2024 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair

A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for most of Minnesota and Wisconsin. A Wind Chill Warning continues for the southwest corner of Minnesota. The advisory and warning are in place tonight through tomorrow at noon.

Good evening! Today is another windy day with bitter cold temperatures. Unfortunately, winds stay strong overnight into Tuesday, and with this arctic airmass in place, dangerous wind chills are again the headline of the forecast. Wind chills tonight are down to -20° to -30° across most of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Wind Chill Warnings are in place across far southwestern Minnesota, as well as towards much of the Dakotas and Iowa. So, we aren’t the only ones dealing with the brutal cold.

Temperatures throughout this workweek stay below average, with single digit highs, and overnight lows a few degrees below/and or above zero most nights. We’ll see a gradual warming trend this weekend, with temperatures looking to be back in the mid-30s Monday and much of next week.

Flurries are possible tonight, mainly north of the metro. I can’t rule out a few flurries Wednesday as well. We have slight chances for light snow late Thursday into Friday, but I don’t see any significant precipitation in the forecast this week.

Have a wonderful night!
