Dangerously cold wind chills arrive Christmas Eve
A blast of arctic air will arrive Christmas Eve and linger through much of the upcoming week in the lakes area.
Dangerously cold wind chills between 25 and 45 below zero are forecast, the National Weather Service in Duluth reported Friday.
The weather service noted wind chill advisories and warnings will likely be needed during over the holiday weekend into early next week. The high on a sunny Christmas Day may top out at 7 below with an overnight low dipping down to nearly 20 below. Tuesday, while providing more sunshine, should continue to bring the deep chill with a high of 6 below and an overnight low of 16 below. Single digit highs, at least above zero, are forecast for the last week of the year.
