Brutal Cold Stretch Of Weather

National Weather Service

ST. CLOUD – After enjoying highs in the low 40′s on Friday, brutal cold is set to arrive Saturday evening and carry well into next week.

SCSU meteorology Professor Bob Weisman says there may even be a streak of 3-4 days where the high temperature doesn’t break above 0.

“This could be the coldest outbreak of the season,” Weisman says. “We could be seeing a streak of 3-4 days through New Years day where the temperature doesn’t get above zero.”

Temperatures are expected to be between -10 and -5 on Sunday morning, with a wind chill between -35 and -20 to go along with it.

“With wind chill temperatures at 35 below, exposed skin can become damaged in 10 minutes or less,” Weisman says.

There is a winter weather advisory that includes St. Cloud, the Twin Cities, Little Falls, Mankato, and into the I-35 corridor from 6:00 p.m. Saturday night to 6:00 p.m. Sunday.

Due to the combination of brutal cold, high winds and blowing snow, Weisman emphasized to be extra cautious while traveling.

“Be prepared and be sure to have an emergency survival kit in your vehicle,” Weisman says.
