It's so stinking cold. That's all we're going to talk about today is how cold it is! As of writing this blog (about 9:30 AM) Faribault's wind chill is at -53F. What did we do to deserve this?!

As of 10:30 AM this morning, here is what the National Weather Service is reporting for wind chill temperatures across Southern Minnesota:

  • Albert Lea: -48F
  • Faribault: -53F
  • Lakeville: -47F
  • Mankato: -51F
  • Owatonna: -53F
  • Red Wing: -48F
  • Rochester: -53F
  • Zumbrota: -53F

It should get better throughout the day though. At 9:30 AM in Rochester the wind chill was reported at -57F and now at about 10:30 AM it's at -53F. So it's getting better, right?

Bring Me the News reports that our record wind chill low is -70F which Ely might have hit this morning. They aren't totally convinced though because their sensor has been overdoing wind speeds.
