When I was going to bed last night, it was -25 degrees Fahrenheit with wind chill that felt like -45 degrees Fahrenheit. On Friday, Janaury 3, Minnesota State governor, Mark Dayton declared “no school” for today statewide because of the brutality of the expected weather.
I have not stepped outside today, but I can feel the cold even indoors. Right now, I am covered in blankets with a space heater on, yet, I can still feel the cold as it sneakily makes it’s ways in through windows and doors panels.
Fox 9 meteorologist, Keith Marler updated his post this morning at 6:59 with “WIND CHILL WARNING until Tues at Noon. Expect wind chills of -40 to -60 this morning & Frost Bite Times of around 5 minutes … a high of -16 this afternoon (chill of -40) … -20s with chills -40 to -60 again tonight … then a high of -2 with a chills of -15 for Tuesday…”
The cold is not leaving us any time soon. The school district called in today to cancel schools for tomorrow to avoid mishap on the way to school, during school, or after school. Right now, it is -13 degrees Fahrenheit, but it feels like -35 degrees Fahrenheit according to the Weather Forecast. The forecast also have been showing an alert since yesterday that says, “Severe weather alert #1: Windchill warning in effect until non CST Tuesday.”
According to the local news, this kind of weather was last experience in Minnesota in 1997.
