DULUTH, (AP) – Northern Minnesota is experiencing a bit of a reprieve from the record-breaking cold before another round of dangerous temperatures arrives early next week.

The temperature plunged to 43 below zero in International Falls in far northern Minnesota early Thursday. Friday morning the mercury hovered around zero in the city that hugs the Canadian border. National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Huyck (hike) says Thursday’s temperature in International Falls breaks a record set in 2010 when the mercury dipped to minus 37.

In St. Louis County, readings dropped to 36 below in Embarrass overnight Thursday and 33 below in Ely (EE’-lee).

Forecasters are expecting even colder temperatures to arrive Sunday night and stay through Tuesday morning. Wind chill readings could plummet to 60 degrees below zero Monday morning.
