Subzero Highs And Arctic Wind Chills To Hit Minneapolis This Week

By Secret Minneapolis

Minneapolis hasn’t seen a Valentine’s Day this cold since 1923!

Minneapolis is looking to be at its coldest this week with temperatures of zero or below and drastically cold wind chills picking up over the next few days. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Valentine’s Day this cold at sub-zero high temperatures, so make sure to snuggle up with someone this Sunday to keep from freezing.

That’s not all. Friday night into Saturday we’ll likely see some snow, though not very much. What we will see is icy roads and freezing cold temperatures, so be careful when driving. Although Minneapolis won’t be setting any drastic records thankfully, we could be seeing wind chills reaching as low as -30 or -40 degrees.

But don’t worry. The arctic air is going to be on its way out starting next week, so we have that to look forward to. We’re almost out of the woods. Minneapolis has also seen much less snow this year than the record-breaking snowfall we experienced two years ago, which has been a relief. For the next few frigid days to come, stay safe and warm.
