Episode Narrative Brutally cold temperatures combined with winds in the 10 to 20 mph range to create dangerous wind chills across northeast Minnesota in early February. Wind chills of -40 to -50 were common February 3rd through the 5th, with afternoon highs remaining below zero. The cold wave closed schools, suspended some outdoor activities, and burst pipes because of the lack of snow cover. Power companies urged their customers to conserve energy during this cold wave, as the region's electrical grid became stressed. It was the longest period of cold since 1996. Morning low temperatures at Duluth were below zero for 10 consecutive days. Lows in the -30s were common across the arrowhead during this first weekend in February into Monday, and Embarrass bottomed out at -42 on the morning of the 4th.
