MINNEAPOLIS — Another round of arctic air has arrived in Minnesota, pushing temperatures to subzero double digits.

The wind is making those subzero temperatures feel like 35 to 40 degrees below in some parts of the state. The National Weather Service issued a wind chill warning for portions of west central Minnesota and a wind chill advisory for the rest of the state and advised those heading outdoors to take extra precautions to avoid frostbite.

High temperatures Tuesday won't make it much above zero. The mercury was 12 below in the Twin Cities Tuesday morning, 22 below at Bemidji (beh-MIJ'-ee) and 26 below in Ely and Hibbing.
