It's been deeply engrained in our minds to let your vehicle warm up before driving it during subzero weather like we're currently experiencing. While that was once good advice, truth is you don't need to anymore.
Duluth hasn't experienced cold temperatures like this since the late nineties, temperatures hit an extreme -22 below Monday morning in Duluth when we decided to try these three experiments; freezing bubbles, making apple juice popsicles and freeze frying an egg...
Temperatures around the Duluth - Superior area this morning were between -15 and -30 Fahrenheit before wind chill was factored in. In America's icebox, places like Embarass and International Falls saw temperatures below -40 before factoring any wind chill. These temperatures have been colder than places in the Arctic Circle lately, but it turns out there is another shocking fact about this frigid cold.
Two feet of snow followed by a frigid cold snap, and winter hasn't even officially started yet (December 21). Considering the weather this month, it is no surprise Duluth makes the list of cities with the most brutal winter weather.
December around the Twin Ports is the first month of the winter season we're practically guaranteed to see measurable snow and temperatures below the freezing mark for days on end. We've seen plenty of both, but the long string of unseasonably cold temperatures so early in December has people wondering if we've made the record books.
The Twin Ports is experiencing its first sustained subzero temperatures in more than a few years, and with the cold weather warnings and school closings have followed. While these conditions are inconvenient and even potentially dangerous, a little fun can be found in it all.
The Superior School District and the Duluth School District have already made the announcements that all public, charter, and parochial schools will be closed tomorrow, January 22nd, 2013 due to the below zero temperatures.
Extremely cold temperatures and wind chill values leading to the wind chill warning in effect through Tuesday have prompted officials at Spirit Mountain to close the hill early on Monday January 21 and Tuesday January 22, 2013.
