The cold spell continues
The cold snap continues on Wednesday.
We hit a windchill of minus 27 at 3 a.m. and later on in the day, it will warm up slightly to a high 10 with a windchill of minus 22.
The frigid temperatures continue into the overnight hours where it will feel like minus 28. On Thursday it continues, sunny with a few clouds and a high of minus 11, with a windchill of minus 20. It won't be until Friday that the windchills disappear.
Our neighbours to the south are also suffering from this cold spell. The Upper Midwest remains locked in the deep freeze, with bitter temperatures stretching into a fourth day across several states.
The cold snap arrived Saturday night as waves of Arctic air swept south from Canada, pushing temperatures to dangerous lows and leaving a section of the country well-versed in winter's pains reeling. Authorities suspect exposure has played a role in at least four deaths so far.
Among the coldest temperatures recorded Tuesday was 35 below at Crane Lake, Minn., a National Weather Service forecaster said early Wednesday. The coldest location in the lower 48 states Monday was Embarrass, Minn., at 36 below, according to the National Weather Service.
