Blizzard Warning expires, but dangerous cold moves into southeastern Minnesota


ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- While blizzard conditions-- including the widespread blowing snow and whiteout conditions we saw last night-- won't be as much an issue today, winds are still strong enough to create localized blowing snow and some brutally cold wind chill values across southeastern Minnesota and north Iowa this Monday.

While the Blizzard Warning expired overnight, the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for most of our area until noon Tuesday. We can expect plenty of sunshine through our Monday, but very cold arctic air coupled with brisk northwest winds will make it feel like it's -40 at times, especially in the morning hours.

Winds will subside a bit more this afternoon with temperatures making their way to -8 to -10 but wind chill values will only improve to around -28.

With clear skies and a lighter breeze tonight, temperatures will drop to the -20 range with wind chill indices as cold as 40 below zero again. Temperature will remain below zero all day Tuesday with wind chill indices at best in the -20 range and then temperatures will climb above zero midday Wednesday.

Temperatures will still be colder than normal, but most above zero for the end of the week through the weekend with a couple of chances of light snow ahead, one Wednesday night into early Thursday and another on Friday.
