ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Warning over much of Minnesota as the coldest air of the season has moved in.

The Wind Chill Warning is in effect through 9 am Tuesday.

Only a slight moderation of temperatures is expected Monday, with highs ranging between 3 below and 11 below zero across central Minnesota.

The cold temperatures combined with northwest winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour will create wind chills of 35 to 45 below zero.

Overnight lows Monday night into Tuesday morning will be in the teens and 20's below zero. Winds will be lighter, but still strong enough to create wind chill values between 35 and 40 below zero.

Forecasters say these wind chills can lead to frostbite and hypothermia for people who are not dressed appropriately.

And while it's bitterly cold in our area, no records are being threatened in St. Cloud. The record low for today is 37 below zero set in 1936.
