Plan B

It was icy cold in northern Minnesota with morning lows ranging from 25 to 30 below zero from International Falls to Cook.

Locally, the back yard thermometer at the Eden Prairie weather lab recorded a minimum temperature of 9 below.

The lastest computer models are tending to push the milder air with this next storm system a tad further north. There is a lot of weather to play out in the next 36 hours before this advertised winter storm shows its face in Minnesota.

No boubt, Sunday appears to be the day of major concern. Have a plan B if you need to travel to western and northern Minnesota on Sunday. After this low pressure churns through the state, another slug of arctic air will take control for Monday through Wednesday.
