The average high for March 2rd is 32˚. The record high is 53˚ (just so you know what's possible). We won't make it above zero again today. Pipes are freezing up. Cars aren't starting. And the patience of usually hearty Minnesotans is wearing thin. But just how cold has it been this winter in St. Cloud? Here's the scorecard by the numbers.
Temperatures are about to get frigid again with subzero wind chills and the National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning that begins at 11 a.m. today (Wednesday) and goes through 3 a.m. Thursday.
Updated at 7 pm on Friday 2/21 - MnDOT is still advising 'no travel' this evening and overnight tonight. Persistent blowing & drifting on top of ice covered roads continue to create hazardous driving conditions. Multiple accidents continue to plague our area. Minnesota State Patrol, "Stay safe by staying off the roads tonight."
Some veteran Minnesota State Patrol troopers are reporting that conditions are as bad as they have seen in 25 years. The situation has prompted all State Patrol command staff to suspend their daily duties and provide assistance on state highways. The Minnesota State Patrol is advising no travel throughout much of the state.
St. Cloud is under a Winter Weather Advisory from 9:00 this morning through Noon tomorrow, with 3" to 5" of snow expected in the area. The brunt of the storm is expected to hit just to the south and east where up to a foot of snow and blizzard conditions are expected. Bookmark our interactive weather page for all the latest.
