Northland residents woke up Thursday to dangerous cold, wind chills

DULUTH, MN-- The milder weather we've been seeing recently has left and in return, mother nature has brought some dangerously cold weather.

A powerful cold front passed through the area Wednesday, which first brought some light snow to the area, then the winds increased out of the north, drawing in all the cold air from Canada.

As temperatures plummeted well below zero, the winds remained gusty out of the N and NW, which created for very dangerous wind chill values Thursday morning.

Here's some of the lowest temperatures as of 9:45 Thursday Morning:

  • Kabetogama: -39
  • Seagull Lake: -38
