Coldest air in nearly two years hits the Midwest U.S.

A blast of Arctic air more intense than anything experienced during the winter of 2011 - 2012 has descended over the Midwest U.S., bringing the coldest temperatures in nearly two years. The low hit -2°F Monday morning in Des Moines, Iowa, marking the first day since February 10, 2011 that Des Moines had dropped below zero. The 710 consecutive days the city had gone without reaching 0°F was the longest such streak on record (previous record: 368 straight days, beginning January 23, 1954.) In Minneapolis, the mercury dropped to -10°F Monday morning, the coldest day since February 10, 2011. With the high temperature not expected to get above zero Monday, the city will likely snap its record-long streak of just over four years without a high temperature above 0°F. The last time the high temperature at the Minneapolis airport was below zero was on January 15, 2009, when the thermometer climbed to only -6°F. The previous longest such streak since record keeping began in 1872 was a 3.1 year streak that ended in January 2004. Strong winds accompanying today's cold blast have dropped the wind chill to a dangerously cold -40 to -50°F across much of Minnesota and North Dakota. The wind chill bottomed out at -51°F at Langdon, North Dakota at 4:35 CST Monday morning, thanks to a temperature of -22° combined with a wind of 17 mph. The wind chill hit -46°F at nearby Devils Lake and -51° at Hamden. The lowest wind chill in Minnesota was at Le Center: -43°F. Brr!

Quoting ncstorm:
The CPC 8-14 day outlook map for windchill-no "toasty" here but "frosty"





looks like it differs from the infamous other map that is posted so much here on the blog..

A couple of things that might help clear up your confusion:

1) Windchill is not the same as temperature.

2) The CPC maps don't show forecasted temperatureshot and cold; they show the chances that temperatures will be higher and lower than the average for any given area. To use a few extreme examples: if an area that normally sees 100 degrees for a high has a really great chance of seeing highs only in the 80s next week, the CPC would shade that area blue. Likewise, if an area that averages 10F for a low is forecast to have a really great chance of seeing lows only into the mid 20s, it will appear red on those CPC outlook maps that are so often posted here.

To use one example from your maps: a forecast high chance of a 10F windchill is not in the least incompatible with a forecast calling for a low chance of an actual temperature in the 30s. It just takes some wind, that's all.

Thanks. I've enjoyed having this opportunity to clarify things.

Correct... After spending 2 years in Fairbanks I remember all of the tricks to keep a car running... There is an oil pan heater, something called a perculator that keeps the water in the radiator moving so it won't freeze... There is also a heater that keeps running in the interior or the plastic interiors will crack... Also a film that has airspace that is put on the windows so they won't freeze and you can still see outside... Many areas had a outlet plug to plug your car into to keep warm... Some free, some you had to pay...But this was many. many years ago.I'm sure Levi knows more about this in the current times

Only once have conditions been present (and work schedule) that let me do a bike ride completely sub 0°. When I left my house that day it was -7° and when I got home it was -1.8°.
(That ride was about 10 miles)
I may get a window on Wednesday or Thursday morning before work to do it again. Possibly get to -10°. I'll bike to the coldest spot in town (within range) to see what I can get to.
It breaks up the Maine winter, plus it puts any daily work issues into perspective when you bike 5-10 miles in winter conditions.


My commute is 16 miles each way, but in DC it never gets that cold, so just normal tele-ski kind of bike gear is always plenty for warmth. My biggest problem when it's below freezing is that my water bottle slush up into slurpee-like frozen glop. However, I got some insulated water bottles that worked great this morning. It's funny how much water you need when it's cold, because it's so dry and you're still sweating at least a little!

Coldest temp this morning in Wisconsin was -28 in Minong (means "place of plentiful blueberries" in Ojibwe), which isn't far from where the state's minimum record was recorded. On the south shore of Lake Superior, my low temp was the -14 shown on the map.

"lowest temperature on record was minus 55 F, reported from Couderay on both February 2 and February 4, 1996." (source)



Edit: just saw a second -28 on the map, east of Minong in a small town called Springstead.

yeah, how do you dress for that?? I wonder if they cancel schools due to those temps?..reminds me of the kid in a Christmas story..they must have some serious antifreeze up there for those car engines..


The school districts in northern Wisconsin usually close when wind chill values reach -40. And that's exactly what the values were this morning, so all schools across my area are closed. I'd imagine that each school district chooses their own threshold.

As a trickle-down effect, some businesses are closed today too. If there's no place for the kids to go, many parents are stuck at home. But really, when exposed skin freezes within 10 minutes, it's best to play it safe and limit outdoor time anyway.

Many memories as a kid that school was closed for cold temps and bitter wind chills.

Yes, even here in eastern Mineral County. We had snow showers overnight but less than 1/2 inch so no worries this morning. But it was 5 this morning, with a windchill of -15. Days like this, when the lake effect snow showers are blowing around but nothing is accumulating, we locals say the "allegheny gnats" are flying :) We had next to no winter last year, so this is a refreshing change with a snow storm predicted for Thursday into Friday. Bundle up Washi, it's gonna be a cold week!

Quoting AussieStorm:

Is it like an electric blanket or something like that?


Some folks gave examples, and I suppose they technically *do* work on the same resistance principle (the metal wire is heated as low current passes through).

As a person who has never had a block heater, becuase I never permentantly lived far enough north, here are some other things I've done to make sure the car will start when living up north.

- remove battery and bring it inside since a warm battery is normally happier than a cold one

- drive front end of truck into brush as far as it'll go

- cover front of car with moving blankets and tarps

- on my motorcycle, in MD, I had an extention cord from the house to the shed and I'd plug in a battery tender connected to the battery and clamp a work light with 100 watt incandescent bulb near the oil bag. I'd turn it on about an hour before going out. (Older Harley Davidsons don't like to start in the low teens)

- I've taken oil out of a tractor, heated on a stove and put it back in :-)

In the military, as long as you weren't down for noise discipline, you would leave stuff running all night or have cyclical starts when deployed or training in cold areas. (I say leave 'em running :-) )

Quoting nymore:
It is a little heater that heats either the water or oil, therefore it keeps your engine block warm.

There have been times where I can not plug my diesel in, when it was very cold I just let it run all night long

I've seen that on Ice Road Truckers. Was going to ask about that.

I just cannot imagine..what that feels like..especially with a wind..lowest ive ever felt was minus 10 degree's and that wasnt any fun at all with a stiff breeze...folks up there probably know but ..be careful of frost bite
This is something you get used to seeing where I live.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A WIND CHILL WARNING MEANS THE COMBINATION OF VERY COLD AIR AND
WIND WILL CREATE DANGEROUSLY LOW WIND CHILL VALUES. THIS WILL
RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA OR DEATH IF
PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN.
