The top story in the weather office is the cold weather. While the weather seems pretty cold around here, folks to our north are experiencing dangerously cold temperatures. Here are some numbers from the AP Wire. The coldest temperature in the nation was found in Hallock, Minnesota, where they recorded a low of -38 degrees this morning. To add to the cold weather, the wind was a big factor. The lowest wind chill recorded was -49 degrees in Grand Marais, Minnesota. With temperatures that cold, it takes about 10 minutes of exposure to cause frostbite. The chart on the side shows how long it takes for frostbite to set in with colder temperatures. Fortunately, temperatures were not near as cold as they were to our north. Here are some of the lows last night.
