December 26, 2017 09:01 AM

The Christmas cold is carrying over into Tuesday. Although it will be sunny, don't be fooled. The wind chill advisory for most of the state remains in effect until noon, as wind chills dip into the dangerously cold -35 degrees.

KSTP Meteorologist Nicole Mitchell said it looks like this arctic cold is here to stay through the new year and likely the next 10 days.


The National Weather Service advises that wind chills this cold can result in frostbite in as little as 15 minutes on exposed skin.
