A wind chill advisory goes into effect at 11:00 p.m. Thursday for Sibley, Redwood, Brown, Nicollet, Watonwan, Blue Earth, Martin, and Faribault Counties.
WeatherEye Meteorologist Megan Mulford said, “We’re going to drop down to six below zero, wind chill values as low as –25. It’s still going to be breezy out there; wind gusts as high as 35.”
Thursday night’s advisory will remain in effect until 9:00 a.m. Friday and Mulford cautioned that the cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.
Friday the expected high is just seven degrees and Mulford said there could be more snow over the weekend. “Another system across the central parts of the Midwest will bring us a chance for some snow showers as we head into Saturday night, maybe another inch or so,” she explained, “We’ll continue with snow as we head into Sunday and Sunday night.”
