Just another balmy midwinter day in January ... before we plunge into the deepest deep-freeze we've had in a while.
By Monday night it will be 12 below zero, the National Weather Service predicts.
The first photo here, at TCF Bank in Fridley, was taken around 2 p.m. Friday: 42 degrees above zero.
The second photo was at 11 a.m. Friday: 37 degrees above zero.
The third photo, showing 16 degrees below zero, is from Fridley resident Laurie Buck. She said the date was Jan. 21, 2011—a reminder that we have had a few pretty cold days even if the past few winters have been generally warmer than average.
