Arctic air will remain in place over the Upper Midwest through the rest of this week, including the Minneapolis area.

While this current polar blast will not equal what the city experienced earlier this month, temperatures will be well below average and gusty winds will make it feel brutally cold.

Temperatures Thursday night will range from just above zero to around 15 below zero, including 24- to 36-consecutive hours when the thermometer will be below zero.
