Bone Chilling Cold Temperatures Gripped Central Minnesota
ST. CLOUD – This (Friday) morning’s temperatures were a doozy, but not a record.
The National Weather Service says our official early morning low at the St. Cloud Regional Airport was 17 below. That’s far from the record low for this date, which is 35 below set in 1996 and 1951.
Our wind chills were between 30 and 35 below this morning.
In fact, this morning wasn’t even our coldest morning this year – we dropped to 18 below back on New Year’s Day.
Some of the low temperatures around the region this morning: Princeton and Long Prairie were at 20 below, Alexandria 19 below, and Paynesville 18 below.
