The warm before the snap' Friday was the exception; dangerous wind chills ahead
BEMIDJI — Here’s hoping you ventured out Friday for the 30-degree temperatures — because they won’t last long.
Included in the hazardous weather outlook are Beltrami County, as well as parts of Hubbard, Clearwater, Polk, Kittson, Norman, Roseau and Lake of the Woods in northwest Minnesota. Much of eastern North Dakota also is included in the outlook.
In Bemidji, the weather service forecast for calls for a chance snow early today, with a high of about 13 degrees, but that will quickly drop to about 22 below by Saturday night, with wind chills of as low as 43 below overnight into Sunday. Temperatures will remain at about 6 or 7 below on Sunday and Monday, but, again, the wind chills will make it feel much, much colder. By Wednesday, the weather service said we should be on the right side of the thermometer, with a high of about 12.
