Low Temperatures and Wind Chills Across the Area This Morning

Bitter cold air greeted the Upper Midwest to start 2013, thanks to an Arctic airmass, clear skies, and light northwest winds. Morning lows plummeted to the single digits to teens below zero for many areas. The listing below shows low temperatures across the area. A steady but light breeze also created hazardous wind chills as low as -25F across parts of southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa. A listing of the lowest wind chills is also below.
