Thu 2-13-2020

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Fear of frostbite is keeping many students home today around Minnesota and has the National Weather Service warning people to limit time outdoors. The arrival of arctic air has pushed wind chill readings down to 40 below across northern and western Minnesota. We had a wind chill of 46 below in Jackson at 4am today, and set a new record low of 18 below this morning, breaking the previous record of 15 below, set in 1970.

Schools were a mixed bag in southern Minnesota with about half delaying 2 hours and the other half cancelling classes.
